        Disregard my post reference my Nook HD not booting back up after a power off.  I have since discovered that my problem was due to my Class 10 32gb micro sd card. Once I removed it, its starts perfectly everytime. Apparently, the Nook HD only supports up to Class 6, guess I should have read the directions better!!

          I'm surprised a Class 10 could cause boot problems...

           

          However, FYI, Class 10 card speed is rated for streaming write access on a freshly formatted card -- eg; a long clip by a video camera. Once a card gets fragmented, or has multiple short files, the Class 10 card is unrated...

           

          Class 2/4/6, OTOH, is based upon fragmented, short, file access -- what you'd find in a data application, not video application. So while a Class 10 may be nearly twice the speed of a Class 6 when reformatted and used for video, it is possible (if unlikely) for the Class 10 be worse than a Class 4 when used with random access data files. I'd expect a SanDisk/Transcend/Lexar Class 10 to be no worse than a Class 6 in data applications -- but the cheaper brands may have been highly optimized for streaming video and have almost no speed when jumping around in memory (they may also not have load leveling to avoid always writing to the same spots in memory).

            Check the manual. Did you have your HD format the card? That could be the problem if you didn't. Class 6 should work.

              Well I got my Christmas Surprise.  I made the mistake of turning on my internet yesterday so my Nook HD+ could update emails.  I had been reading a book without internet and then I put the Nook HD+ down on a table so I could go check on my Christmas dinner I was preparing and when I went back to to check my Nook it was not on the page of my book. Instead it looked as if it was updating! I didn't even know an update was available yet as I had not checked earlier. When the update completed I had no wallpaper, no internet icons, no email, and worst of all absolutely NO PURCHASED CONTENT was accessible. Since books are stored someplace we can't look at I couldn't find any trace of my 900+ books and although the app section on the settings showed my apps still installed the apps page had no content. Going to the master profile and managing content only let 16 apps reappear.  I was not a happy camper.  Does ANYONE with ACTUAL KNOWLEDGE of the DEVICE ACTUALLY TEST THESE THINGS!!  My company would fire me if I let a software update go out like this!!!  I tried the soft reset and got nothing back. The hated carousel was gone but that was because all the BN content was GONE!

              The only content I had was my sideloaded books and stuff on my SD card!

               

               

              After reading through the postings I reluctantly did the erase/reregister thing after I unmounted my sd card for safety as I had some stuff backed up to it.  The reregister was sucessful and all my content except for Quick Office Pro ( missing in action) was back.  I have to redownload everything!! I lost all apps settings, game progress but at least stuff is back. BN needs to put a warning label on this minor update that you needs to backup your files in the internal memory before letting the update rip. Unfortunately my update happened with no warning at all.  BTW My Carousel returned with my BN content.

                Had to do the "erase and re-register" operation.

                 

                Never mind the re-set up of the network, re-setup of e-mail, browser bookmarks, etc.  But I really, really, have to go through and re-download all my books one at a time?  There's no download all option?  No way to synch with nook for PC?  Copying the files from the nook for PC folder to the internal nook HD storage just duplicates all the titles (one "real" one waiting for download and the copied one with a generic cover icon).

                 

                I have only about 200 titles.  I've seen people on here with 1,000+.  That's a lot of tapping and waiting.

                  I believe 1968, I use a class 10 sd card in my nook hd and the only real problem I've ever had is any shelves I make to organize my books disappear if I hook it up to my pc. Otherwise it's worked pretty well. I turn it on and off all the time with zero issues (I've owned it for about 2 months now). I needed a higher class for all my audio books. This is the first time I even heard that they didn't support higher class sd cards. I think that the shelves disappearing is a common issue for most on here so I'm not sure that that is your problem. I thought I'd comment just in case, like me, you had wanted or needed a high class sd card for a reason and so anyone else that saw this thread would know that a class 10 sd card CAN work just fine in a Nook HD. I hope you're able to resolve your nook issues soon!

                    Just got the update to 2.05. Most of my apps and all my B&N content are gone. Put a power cycle and still in a weird state. I'll do a Factory Reset and see if I can get back to the begining step. Then I'll get to do all the set-up work all over again!

                     

                    Thanks B&N, thanks...

                     

                    P.S. - I'll never buy another B&N reader. I loved my original Nook, but Nook HD+ has been a POS. Next time, it's an Android Tablet. I'll never make this mistake again...

                      Do you have an SD card in?
