    trouble downloading magazines to nookcolor

      I just got my nook color yesterday. I connected it to my PC via the USB cable. I bought 2 magazines but there are messages that they can't be read or downloaded--either on the PC or the device. they won't even appear on the nook. I haven't used my nook via WiFi yet. if I use wifi does it solve this problem? I would really like to read the magazines I just purchased! is anyone else having problems with downloading from a PC??

          You have to turn on your WiFi and connect to download.

          If you don't have WiFi at home, then run over to B&N.

              This does not help if you have wifi at home. The magazines should load as easily as a book. It seems that it is in a different format and we may have to change setting to allow it. Can someone with real answers help like a nook tech?

                  The newyorker is not availiable for nookcolor. Magazines for the nookcolor are easy. Go to shop then browse magazines. If the one you want is lsted then you can dwnload it. Not all Ezines are formated for nookcolor. More are being added all the time. You can contact mag publisher and request nookcolor format. B&N is not in control of which mags publish for nookcolor.:smileyhappy:

                    I was experiencing the same problem.  I turned my NookColor off completely, then turned it back on.  When I went to my library's magazine section and hit the "sync" button, the magazine came up with a 'download' bar.  Once I hit the download, I could read it just fine.  Hope this helps!

                        My mom is having the same problem. We did all of the resets, wait 24 hours, remove credit cards that were suggested when I called. But they said the only solution is to unregister and re-register, that is the only thing that works, because and I quote “we have had this issue before”. You have had this issue and found no other solution.

                         

                        But that solution does not work for us because if you unregister you lose all of your angry bird scores, and that's a lot of hard work. Since it is B&Ns Nook that is faulty I would think they would find a solution.

                    I assume the magazines were purchased from BN.  You need to use the wifi to download and read them.

                      I have a subscription to New Yorker magazine.  It is still downloading to my NOOK, but I have been unable to download any issues to my new NOOKcolor.  Does anyone know what is going on?
