      I am trying to change the email address that my Nook First Edition is registered.  I am getting frustrated because i didnt realize this would happen and i just purchased some new reads....

          Don't panic there is a procedure you need to follow.

           

          1) Unregister the NOOK

          2) Change the email address on your B&N account to the new address.

          3) Register your NOOK to the new address.

           

          If you have already changed your B&N email address you need to change it back to the address you registered your NOOK to, then follow the three steps above.

              The problem is I dont have access to the old email adress anymore, as we changed providers.  So when i would change it back to the old email address i would have no way to confirm the change?

                  I went through the same thing (nothing like learning the hard way).

                   

                  You don't have to verify the old address, so you can change your account email, unregister the NOOK and change your account email to the new address.

                   

                  It is for this reason that I now use a gmail address for all my accounts, because this address I can keep no matter how many times I change my Internet provider.

                You should be able to just follow the process for Erase and de-register on the Nook.  It may ask you for the password on the old email address.  This is to disable stolen Nooks, but it tends to screw up a lot of people.  Then register the Nook to the new address.  It will need to re-download all your books.

                  I don't think you need to confirm the change.  Try this, if you can:  change your account back to the old email address on the B&N web site.  Connect the Nook back to it.  Then erase and deregister the Nook.  (On the website, you can go to My Nook and see whether the Nook is still registered to it.)

                   

                  Then change the address on your B&N account, and register the Nook to it.
