Library not updating

Greetings,

I am a new owner of nook and fresh user of Calibre. My first problem is that the library is not being updated. I have 5 epub-s on the nook. Those are displayed under the device. Hit 'Save to Disk'. Files get copied into the intended directory on the computer, but the library list in Calibre is empty. No item under the nook list gets the 'In Library' check mark. What has not been done right?

The above is after I deleted all files under the library folder on the computer. Then I start Calibre, which creates the metadata.db.

WinXP Home SP3
Calibre 0.7.8
nook 1.4

Thanks.

Try this in Calibre:
— Click on the little down triangle next to "Add Books," to add multiple books from a single directory, assuming every book is a different book
— locate & select the directory in which you've saved the books
— Click "OK" or Add
— be patient

Save to disk does only that, saves the files to disk. It does not affect calibre's library.

If what you want to do is copy the books to calibre's library, select the books on the nook view, right click, and choose 'Add books to library'.
