Exclamation Using the nook while it's charging through your computer?

Hi All

When I am charging my nook by connecting to my laptop, on the screen it says the followings:

"If you want to use your nook and continue charging, please choose Eject or Unmount from the menu for the nook drive on your computer. If your nook also has a microSD card, eject that drive too."

So I ejected the nook, and nothing happened. I hit the power button, thinking it was sleeping, and nothing happened. I still have the same "if you want to use your nook..." screen showing. The nook is still charging.

I'm not sure if I'm doing it wrong somehow (EVERYTHING is for sure ejected) or if this is just another one in the laundry list of bugs. Has anyone successfully used their nook while charging through the USB from the computer?

I'm using WinXP Pro Sp3, and Nook Firmware 1.3

Cheers



Cheers

I've used my nook this way. I also have XP and Nook 1.3. From the windows explorer "My Computer" window, the Nook is listed in the "Devices with Removable Storage" section. I right-click on nook icon there and select 'Eject'. The windows icon becomes generic (no longer says 'nook' but is still listed as a removable drive) and the Nook screen flashes and goes to the last page showing before I plugged it in. I can then use it as it charges.

However, when I try to use the Calibre program to eject it, it completely disappears from the "My Computer" window and the Nook screen retains the "if you want to use your nook" screen. So I don't do it that way.

How are you attempting to eject the Nook?

Huh, I totally forgot "Eject" option, I think what Calibre do is "Safely remove hardware" what I did is also "Safely remove hardware".

Seems that Eject and Safely remove hardware are different.

Thanks
