Nook Error & Customer Support

Hello All,

New to the forum here. I've had my nook a week and, up until today, I loved it. I subscribed to my local paper when I got my nook. It showed up daily fine until today. I logged onto bn.com and saw a message that said they were suspending newspaper subscriptions pending an update, but no ETA on that (disconcerting, since I pay to get it delivered daily).

Then, I tried to update my library and I get the error "Error Updating B&N Library: Your B&N library could not be updated at this time. Please try again later."

I called customer service, and the gentleman had me to unregister, do a factory reset, and then re-register. Now my library is completely gone, it still won't update, and they have no idea why or what to do. They said wait for a while and hopefully it will be fixed.

I'm hoping this is not what the nook experience usually is. I find it disturbing that they don't know why it's happening, and can't tell me when my newspaper will be delivered.

Anyone else having similar issues today? I searched twitter (good for answering the age-old question of "Is it just me, or is everyone boinked?") and don't see others having this issue.

Same error for me

I am having the same issue with my library. I get the error you quoted on my Nook, and my iPad won't update but there's not an error message on the iPad. I have not called customer support yet but am about to do so.

Mine just fixed itself, but it didn't remember where I left off in the books I was reading. And whatever newspaper "update" that is supposed to make it worththe inconvenience is completely transparent--it looks just like yesterday's newspaper.

I'm within my return window. I'll wait and see if this is indicative of the nook experience. I hope it's not.

Yeah, mine just fixed as well, both nook & iPad.

This is not the normal experience I have had to date. I have been using the nook since Feb and both the iPad & nook since May on almost a daily basis. This is the first time since May that I've had issues downloading/syncing. One time around March, when the nook was still new and on an earlier firmware version, I had to call customer support and do a factory reset. I don't remember the error message I had at the time.

One thing that you & I may have in common is that I just started a trial newspaper subscription....which I have never had before. Like you I am still in the "trial" period. I wonder if the newspaper subscription was part of the problem?

Not sure, but my newspaper is not letting me read the Metro section. It bounces me back to the My Library screen. I really hate dealing with technical support, so I'll probably let it slide and see if tomorrow's paper is fixed.
