    Unable to see the books from SD card on Power OFF and Power ON

      Hi Team

       

      Yesterday I bought new Nook Simple Touch and I have inserted microSD card. Also I have copied few ebooks to SD Card and I can read the books.

       

      But once I Power Off my Nook simple touch... and after sometime Power On.. I could not see my books in SD card. If I go settings of SD card,  all the options are disabled.

       

      Again If I power off and open SD card and  Re Insert then On power ON i can see my books.

       

      I dont understand why SD card items are not showing in powe off and Power ON?

       

      Please suggest

       

      Thanks

      Sharan

          It's happened to me a dozen times over a year or so. I don't know why.

              I suspect it's one of the following issues

               

              1) a bad SD card

               

              2) an improperly seated SD card

               

              3) a bad SD card reader in your particular NST

               

               

              I suspect this because you say when you go to options and check the SD card the options are all disabled, meaning the NST does not see an SD card there.

               

              What you can do to narrow down the issues

               

              1) Try the SD card in other devices, a computer would probably work best.  Make sure to reboot a few times to fully test if the computer has issues reading the card.

               

              2) Eject and reseat the SD card, if your NST is showing ebooks from the SD card go in to the options and unmount the card then open the slot on the side and remove the card.  If the NST isn't reading ebooks from the card, you can just open the slot and remove the card. 

               

              3) Try another SD card in the NST.  I doesn't need to be yours, but it should be formated for the NST so make sure any data is backed up first.

               

              4) If none of that resolves the issue, I would try reformating your SD card via the NST and then adding books to it.  It's possible, though unlikely, that some glitch happened when the card was being formated.  You'll need to restore the books to the card after the reformat.
