calibre does not see the books on my Nook

I had Calibre set up for my Sony e-reader. Now I have a Nook Color. I upgraded the Calibre software and ran the set up wizzard again choosing Nook color. Selecting the device icon it showed no books on my Nook. I checked the device plugin and Nook was there. The debug function shows connected to nook. On the GUI lower left corner shows the version of Calibre and connected Nook. At the library screen are all the books I have listed. I selected one and had it sent to my device and it shows up there. I also tried down loading National Geograpic news and it appeared on my Nook. So to me Calibre is seeing the Nook, but why dosn't Calibre see the books on my Nook?? I thought it might have been because I had set everything up with my Sony. I started all over fresh with my laptop and loaded Calibre and connected my Nook and it could not see the books on my Nook. What am I doing wrong????

Your are not doing anything wrong. B&N Nooks (I'm assuming it's the same with the Color, I have a Touch) do not export and allow your computer to see books you've downloaded using the Nook itself. Basically anything you've downloaded using the Nook from your B&N library cannot be seen. The Nook hides these files and does not make them accessible to your computer. This prevents calibre from seeing them.

Thanks, yes it is Barns and Noble Nook color. So even if you can see them in a folder on the Nook something dosn't allow to be seen by Calibre. Yes most of mine have been bought on line with Barns and Noble. I wish I had known this to begin with and I am glad I posted, because this was very frustrating. I wonder if it would be worth emailing Barns and Nobel about this?? Thanks again for the reply, makes me feel better. If I learn anything else I will post it.

Hi: Had the same problem too. So, now I download my ebooks from my B&N Library to my computer and then drag-drop them into Calibre.

Thanks mmwhite, I will try that and give you an email if I have any problems. I asked at B&D and they said it was from DMR if I got it right, the encryption dosn't allow it to be seen.
