CBR/CBZ Converted to Epub not displaying on my new nook.

I just got my new nook yesterday and was exited to be able to read manga on a device thats more suited to it than my ipod, converted my files using calibre and then tryed opening it on my nook. I can see the Cover image but beyond that i dont see anything in the files.. No pages or anything. What am i doing wrong

Also i tried PDF, pdf displays but it the very bottom tip of the image gets cut off and is on a seperate page, meaning i have to skip a page everytime i try to turn the page

When you convert to epub, you need to make sure the conversion resizes the image for the nook's screen (600 x 730). IIRC, the nook will not attempt to resize an image in an ePub document, so if it is too big it may just not display anything at all.

Alternatively you can convert to PDF instead, then set text size to small, and it will shrink the image to fit the screen, though this may lead to unreadable text.

I told calibre to use Nook settings when i installed it, where would i go to check and make sure its the right size?

Also calibre actually set the PDF to have the end of the page on an ACTUAL diferent page, so no matter how small my text it will always be split. But i think i already figured that out (somehow)
