Unhappy Books on Nook Color not found

I downloaded all my e books in my B&N library to my Nook Color . I want to transfer them to my PC. Calibre sees the nook as a device, but finds no books to copy to the library on the PC . In the latest version of Calibre, the preferences tools also do not match previous posts in the forum.

Should I expect it to take some time (over 5 minutes) for calibre to see the books on the Nook, or do I have something set incorrectly.

Thanks for any help you can give. I want to have ALL my books on my PC now that B&N is not allowing access to your online library if the credit card associated with the account expires.

Thanks again, jim

Have you tried the Nook for PC app? If I remember correctly the app saves the books to My Barnes & Noble ebooks in your Documents folder in Windows 7. From there you can drag them into Calibre and save them in your Calibre library.

B&N do not make purchased books available over the USB connection.
