New Nook Simple Touch & Calibre

I just got my new Nook and couldn't wait to get it home so that I could move the book that I'm currently reading (on old Nook) onto it. But calibre doesn't detect it. –I followed the steps listed on the post about this, but I don't have the same options listed under preferences so I couldn't do that part (OSX).

I also had a very slow connection when I tried to download the recent update, so I cancelled it and will retry later. Will the 0.8.4 version handle the Nook Simple Touch? If not, do you know when it will be supported?

I also tried just dragging the individual epub file from my calibre library into the documents folder, but that didn't work either. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks!

Thanks for your instant reply. Can't wait to download it. Will be making another "donation" to you as well. Thanks for writing such a wonderful piece of software!

I just downloaded the update and when I went into calibre, it recognized the device but I think it thinks it's my older nook–that's the picture icon that I see. But also, it thinks my book is already on the device, though the other books that are on the old nook are not listed, only the one that I'm currently reading. BUT, the book isn't actually on the new STR.

There is one change that I made within calibre since I updated and tried to put the book on the Nook STR–I changed my default from B&N Nook to Generic because I want to be able to load books onto my Android phone or iPad, and the instructions said to do that. Did I somehow confuse the software?

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

P.S. I exited from calibre and tried it again. This time, it didn't think the current book was on the device so I added it. When I tried to access it on the STR, I got the following message: "This Nook cannot read this file. It may be an unsupported format."

Is this because I changed it to "Generic" rather than Barnes & Noble Nook?

You sent a format that the Nook can't handle.
Many e-readers only handle a few formats. (and the ones that handle many, don't always do them all well )

When you save to disk (the disk is on your device), you bypass the is, valid format checks.
Send to device should suggest a conversion if the reqired format is not available.

I have a problem I do not see addressed here, and wonder if the same thing is happening to anyone else. Calibre sees my Nook Touch and I can transfer books OK, but it has Main memory and the memory card reversed. When I send books to Card A, it actually puts them in the Main Memory. I want all my sideloaded books on the card, which is what it did with my old Nook. I know I can pull the memory card and load the books directly onto that, but that's sort of a pain since Calibre should place the books on the card when asked to...is there any way to force it to place the books where I want them? Thanks!

So sorry, I didn't realize I had not installed the 0.8.5 update yet, I thought I had. I just did and hooray! It not only fixed the jpg issue but also my books are all now on the memory card. Thanks for the update!
