        I converted a movie to MP4 format using a converter software, however when I try to drag it/ move it to the nook tablet, I get a message saying there is not enough space.  However, I have added a 32gb sd card to the nook so there should be plenty of space.

         

        Any ideas what to do?

         


        Were you trying to drag it to the NOOK or to the SD card itself? Make sure it's the SD card. When I did it, I got the "not enough space" message, too, until I moved it to my 32gb n2a card.

          You can determine the file type by looking at the "extension" letters after the file name.  MovieName.Mp4

            I tried to drag it to the card, while in the nook, and still get a message that there is not enough space.  There is plenty of space even though it keeps giving me the same message.

              Why not try taking it out of the NOOK and putting it into your computer and installing the movie file that way?

                That would be my suggestion as well. Movies take up a huge amount of room. Many are so bad I don't want to watch them more then once anyway. I know Netflix stinks but best to stick to streaming video to Nook. Don't know if the program suggested here would let you burn the computer file to DVD. Paid version of Nero can do this & overcome CP issue but it's $70.

                 

                I have a couple of travel videos I downloaded from the library. Would like to keep these for future reference as they expire in 7 days. They are sitting in Overdrive Media Console. Are in WMA format which not acceptable to Nook & won't burn to DVD in unpaid versions Nero or Roxio which can't handle DVD & does not recognize this format. (However both do a good job on music CDs even if CP is present)Video file is copy protected. Don't want to mess with the library file but could I copy the file to another folder & use DVD Catlyst & convert to send to Nook OR leave as it & burn to a DVD? Would rather burn to DVD as I think I will still have to deal with 7 day expiration if sent to Nook. 

                 

                If anyone knows, please post.

                  To quote DVDCatalyst:

                   

                  These so-called "Digital Copies" that you get with some Bluray & DVD movies (or the ones some memorycard companies give away) are DRM-protected, meaning that a device and the file needs to be activated and connected to eachother in order for it to play. The NOOKcolor doesn't have this activation system. The same goes for movies you can purchase/rent from iTunes.

                   

                  In general, unless you have an Apple device or play them on your computer, "Digital Copies" are pretty much useless.

                      Hi. I've got a 32GB Class 4 Transcend Micro SD card with adapter that I would like to use to put some movies on to watch on the Nook Color. I put the card+adapter into my W8 computer, and it sees the card all right and 29GB are free. However, when I try to copy a 5.6GB movie to it, I get an error that the file is too large and there's not enough space on the card. But there's 29GB free! Any ideas? Thanks.
