Your nook was unable to connect. Please try again

I get this message whenever I try and download any sample of a book

Do a search for 'Nook unable to connect'. I noticed a few threads where others have had this problem but didn't want to cut and paste each link in here.

Re-registered my nook and was able to get 4-5 book samples before I began getting this error again
My signal strength ( WiFi ) is excellent; and I made sure that I have a default credit card associated with my account.

Sakura,
Maybe you should check your credit card online and make sure it's still valid.
One of the reasons I sold my nook is the "default credit card" issue. My hubby forgot to make last month's payment to the CC company, and when I tried to open a book I already paid for on my nook, I got an error message (forget what it said) but I could not read any of the books I paid for in the past until I listed a new default credit card. I was sooooo upset. Guess B&N does not really allow you to "own" a book you already paid for. Makes me want to buy dead tree books again!

I do not see why you could not read a book you already purchased. The B&N DRM scheme is the same as fictionwise and I know people who have purchased books then changed credit cards and those books were still linked to the old card (they had to know the credit card number to unlock the book). If they wanted to have the new credit card number as the key for unlocking all their books then they had to change their default credit card number and redownload the book.

At the moment you download the book, the book is encrypted using the current default credit card. So without a credit card the book cannot be encrypted and thus not be downloaded.
You should always backup your books after buying them. Never trust an online site with the only copy of your books.
When a bookstore loses its contract with a publisher or wholesaler your books are gone.
At the moment a lot of people cannot download their books because of the whole agency 5 debacle.
