I fianlly dropped the allocation size to 512, the reformat was successful and I am reading from the nook like a champ. I'm not sure of the cause but glad I found the fix. Thanks for the help.
It may be that the Nook has a 'hard' drive buffer size. Usually, Windows format recommends the allocation size based upon the partition size.
4096 sounds huge (and wasteful) for FAT32 e-book usage
