New Computer, and having trouble finding my Nook dowloads



On my old computer, I had been using Nook Study. It was a bit of a pain, but it enabled me to download my BN books once they did away with that feature.

When I re-installed Study, it no longer logs in. I put in my user name and password, but the hourglass just spins and spins....until it stops.

I downloaded the new Nook for PC, but I can't find the file folder that stores the book files.

Any suggestions out there? I regularly download my books and run them through Calibre but it's getting very irritating to have access blocked!

I am having the same issue. I found my Nook folders under documents but none of my books after 2010 show there and I know my new books have been downloaded via Nook for PC

I am assuming you are using Windows.

New Nook for PC do you mean the one from the Windows store? If so get rid of that.... well just uninstall it.

You will have to find a copy of the old Nook for PC, install it and your ebooks will be:
Code:
Doucments\My Branes & Noble eBooks\youremailaddress\
Link for the old Nook for PC.


You can try to trick Nook Study by entering you account information , press enter then while it is logging on close the program--do not let it time out-- if it asks do you really want to close, closing will prevent syncing etc,etc, click yes close. Now reopen the program and see if you are logged in.

On my win 10 this is where Nook for PC stores ebooks.
Code:
C:\Users\username\Contacts\Documents\My Barnes & Noble eBooks\emailaddress
Note this is for the Nook for PC not the one from the windows store.

WOW! Thank you so much for that download link. I hated Nook Study, but it was the best I could find when BN shut down the library download abilities.

This is great. Thanks again!
