OMG! I have been working with this for TWO hours! My Nook suddenly wouldn’t connect to my laptop or download a book I preordered. This started AFTER my Nook automatically updated to the newest, greatest software version.
I went to the Nook technical support and the guy tells me to “deregister & register” my device. After I hit the button he tells me to – he says “Oh, by the way, that will delete all the books off your Nook”. There were SEVERAL books I had highlights of passages and bookmarks – yep, all gone.
God what a mess! My wireless, which connected perfectly on the first day, suddenly wouldn’t connect so I spent FOREVER working on that. I finally got it to work after a long time and several cuss words later. Now I have to individually download ALL 197 books again and that doesn’t count the ones I uploaded myself – over 400 books!! I am about ready to scream!
I absolutely LOVE my Nook and this is the first time I have ever had any problems with it so I can’t really complain. It just irritates me that they automatically downloaded a software update that totally screwed my system. I still don’t know if the original problem of being able to connect to my laptop or not because it is still downloading books. Man I am so frustrated! I also need some caffeine but only have coffee and tea. I drank a cup of coffee and my headache got worse…go figure.
Damn, what an aggrevation I didn’t need today!
