    Why files are appearing on SD card?

    TarHeelGirl00

      I use a SD card with my Nook Tablet only for storing audiobooks and a few sideloaded books.  Today I noticed my Documents folder contains over 100 files.  The Videos and Books folders also contain many files as well, and all have names such as "!" or "@." 

       

      The files will not open and the message says "The nook cannot read this file. It may be an unsupported format."  I connected my Nook to my computer, but the files do not show up----both the Documents and Videos folders appear as empty and the Books folder contains only those books I have sideloaded.  It's as if the files don't exist. My computer is set to show hidden files.

       

      My question is how the files were saved to my SD card and why I can't retrieve them on my PC?  Am I safe to delete them on my Nook and how do I prevent this from happening again?

       

      Thanks for any insight and help.

          Just wondering if using apps or the internet could have anything to do with this?  I noticed one other person has had this same problem. 

           

          Does anyone have any suggestions?
