    I got a free app from Amazon and have been trying and trying to put this on my Nook Color, I am unable to get it on my Nook. It keeps telling me to archive it and then archive it. Once I click on ok I am unable to find it.

    Is your Nook rooted or running a custom ROM? Do you have the unknown sources box checked in Settings?

    Is your Nook rooted? If it isn't rooted or running a custom ROM you will not be able to access the Android Market or Amazon App Store. If it is you go Settings>Applications then check the Unknown sources box.

    If you are not yet rooted you are in the right place. We can help you with that ;)

    Generally speaking SanDisk Class 4 or Class 6 work the best in the Nooks. Size is a matter of preference but I suggest 4GB or larger.

    I think I have forgotten everything there is about my computer. I inserted a SanDisk SDHC Card into the slot on my computer and can't find it listed anywhere. Is this even the right memory card. I am an older person who I think my mind is leaving me. GGG! Really I could use all the help that I could possible get on this.
    Thanks

    Sure, one thing to note is that the Nook Color actually uses a micro SD card rather than a full sized SD card, though they often come with a full size adapter so that you can use them in standard SD card slots. Because it is understood that the Nook Color uses a micro SD card the we tend to shorten it to just SD card in use around here.

    What type of computer are you using and what version of OS (i.e. XP, Vista, Windows 7)? Basically they all have a way to navigate to the main directory called "My Computer" which will list your drives. The micro SD card should show up as one of these drives.

    Ok then that was my problem I didn't purchase the micro SD cards. So I will need to take these back and get the right ones. I have a Dell desktop, using Win 7 32bit. The card I put in didn't show up in my computer. I will go back to town tomorrow and get the right ones. I guess I should have looked at my papers to see what to get. Duh me. I did download the programs that I am suppose to use but I'm not sure I really understand how to do it even though I have read it. So I will be asking you for your help again tomorrow if you don't mind.

    Thanks alot. I really appreciate all the help you are giving to me to get my Nook the way I want it.
