Unhappy calibre, nook, mac memory problem

I have a white macbook w/ 2GB memory and when I use Calibre to change metadata for my nook for more than 10 minutes, Calibre eats into almost 500mb of ram!
Additionally, When trying to transfer files over to my nook, it "beachballs" my mac indefinitely.
please help!

oops - running the latest calibre build and nook firmware

I'm guessing you're using PDF files?

Yes, primarily - is that not a best practice? I am concerned about epub reformatting.
Also, the books do not show up in my library on the nook. It attempts to check for new items and then kicks me back to the homescreen with no results.

Go to Preferences->plugins->metadata writer plugins and disable the PDF metadata writer plugin

And I would strongly advise against using PDF files.
