Calibre can't read B&N purchased content on Nook STR

I just purchased a Nook STR for my wife. Set it up with B&N and purchased a book. Downloaded the book from B&N and opened to read...all of this works.

I then installed the latest ver. of Calibre, configed for Nook STR/Classic, restarted Calibre, plugged in the Nook, opened the Nook main memory and it's blank.

I've powered off the Nook, restarted Calibre, restarted the PC all with the same results, no content visible in Calibre. I connected the Nook to a different machine with Calibre where I connect my Nook Classic, still can't read B&N content on the Nook STR.

I've side loaded content to the Nook STR with Calibre with no issues, can see the content on the Nook STR and can see the content in main memory with Calibre, still can't see B&N purchased content.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? I don't understand what's going on, can someone here help?

calibre only shows sideloaded content on Nooks. I can't recall why.

It shows all content on the Nook Classic but only sideloaded content on the Nook STR?

Is this something that is being addressed as a Calibre bug, or something that I need to figure a workaround for?

calibre will show only files that exist under the My Files directory, so if you want your purchased content to show up, move it into My Files.

That's not really a solution either since I can't see the B&N purchased content when I look at the main memory as a mounted drive in windows either.

Thank you for your help.

B&N purchased content is hidden. That is by design.

Thank you for your help.
Purchased B&N books go to an internal partition you cannot see when mounting the device. If you need a copy of your purchases, you can download from B&N website.

If you check the device settings it tells you there are about 240Mb available; you have an extra 750 for purchases that does not show up.
