Help with Downloading to NookHD

I am about to lose it over this downloading to my nookhd. I have tried and tried and not getting the books over to the nookhd. I have been successful with a few of them but have been trying for days to get the rest of my list transferred. What am I doing wrong? Hope someone can help me....Wrenie

Maybe you could describe exactly what IS going wrong when you send books; none of us are mind readers.

What Operating System?

What version of Calibre are you running?

Is the Nook being seen by the computer outside of Calibre?

Is it seen in Calibre?

If you're running Windows, it should be pretty straight forward.
If you're running Linux, it may take a bit of work.

More information.

Replys to Your Replys

Thank you all for replying to my question about my nook.
1. When I try to download to my nook hd, some of my wanted books won't download. Nothing happens

2. I have the latest version of Calibre.

3. One of the books I have will only download the cover. I can open it on my computer and in Calibre but it refuses to download the entire book to my nook.

4. I can't seem to change Rar books to the needed epub.

That is the best I can explain it to you. Hope you can help me...Wrenie

I am running Windows 7. The latest version of Calibre. My computer sees my nook but I don't know how to see if Calibre sees my nook. Although, I have been able to download some books.

Look at the bottom of Calibre. It will say Device: <device name> detected Or Connected to: <device name>

Wrenie, AFAIK, when you plug your Nook HD into your computer, it will not show up in Calibre as a device. You will have to manually drag and drop book files into the appropriate directory on your Nook, depending on the android reader you are using.

OR -- you can use an android app such as Calibre Companion (paid) or Calibre Sync (free) to get your books over to your Nook HD. It will connect wirelessly to calibre and let you import books. I use Calibre Companion and it works extremely well. It is very versatile and lets you sort and manage your books on your Nook HD (or any android device) very easily. If you want a free app, check out Calibre Sync.

It is important to know which reader(s) you are using on your Nook HD. Because that will help determine what your options are and the best way to import books. Let us know.

--Pat
