    Sideloading question

    LindaRosita

      So I have looked at a lot of things, and all I really find is sideloading books from your computer. I do not have any on my computer. I installed a memory card so that I may have more room, but I do not know how to add books on there. I usually add books from the nook store directly on my nook. Is there a way to get them to go to my memory card? or move what is already there to it? How do I utilize all that extra room? I look at my folders and there are no books listed there. I use a simple touch.

          The easy way to maintain books that are not DRM is to use the freeware Calibre. It wil show you what is on your computer, what is on your Nook and what is on your SD card and easily transfer and delete books as you desire. Go to calibre-ebook.com to download the program. For books that are DRM, but not from B&N you need to use Adobe Digital Editions, again freeware, but not nearly so friendly.

            There is no way to move books that you've downloaded to your nook from your download folder to your SD card.  The SD card is only for books that you've sideloaded from your computer.  However, if you're low on space in the internal memory of your nook, you can download some books you already own to your computer via Nook for PC or NookStudy (which works on both PC and Mac), then sideload them to your SD card from your computer.  You would then archive the same books in your Nook account to remove them from your internal storage.
