Calibre help for Nook Color

I just got my Nook Color, downloaded Calibre to my comp, loaded up a bunch of books, and hooked up my Nook Color, and nothing. There is no upload to ebook reader, and it doesn't show a picture of my nook Color on the toolbar either. Does anyone have any suggestions? This is my first ebook reader, and my first tme using Calibre.

Make sure your NOOKcolor is unlocked. There's a slider that needs to be slided to the right with your finger. Your computer should recognize it as a drive. Hope this helps.

Welcome!

Does your computer recognize the device? What is the operating system?

It's ok, Love. You remind me of my husband.

I'm not a Windows 7 person but find "My Computer" and click on it. It should show you your drives. See if the NOOKcolor (NC) is there. Make sure the NC is unlocked.

Alright, post a new thread with the NOOKcolor flag. Call it "Windows 7 Won't Recognize NOOKcolor".

This will get quick responses from the Windows 7 folks who may not click on this thread.

Scion. That quick reply to Stephiepoo helped me, too.

hope i can help you.
try this:

connect the nc to your computer
windows will ask, if you want to check the device - decline that.
windows will ask again for your sd-card - decline it again.
start calibre
calibre will ask what the reading device is and what output form you would like.
go to b&n than nookcolor - for output format check epub.
after a while, you see your device in calibre and your sd-card.
press add book in calibre (brow book with a + on it) - brouse to the folder that content your books, click open
your books should arrive in the calibre-library after a while

mark the new books and click to convert books upper line brown icon with up and down arrows

after a while calibre is ready with converting.

right click on the first book and go with the mouspointer on "edit metadata", click "edit metadata individually" with left mouse
now you can change the title and the author.
when that is right, go on the lower left and click - "fetch metadata from server."
normally your computer will find over the internet the metadata and the titel pictures.
do that for all the books, you dont have with metadata and titel - while clicking on the "next" button.
when you are ready click the "ok" button,
now mark all your books and click right - pointer on "send to device" - click "on send to main memory" or "send to storage card A"

when calibre is ready, ejeckt your device in the top line of calibre - "device" - there is a small arrow next to device. click that and then "eject device".

after that go to the lower right on your window7 screen and click on the small triangle, click in the new window on your ubs sign and "save remove your nc".
unpluck the nook from the usb cable

and your books should be there - give the nc some minutes to update the books and you will see them with most of the titelpix

keep reading - sorry for my typos - but english is not my first language
