    Yes, you can do everything with your Nook and a usb cable. The preferred method is to use a card reader though. A usb card reader can be had for just a few dollars and is a good investment.

    Just to encourage you a little more here are many card readers under $10 :)

    If you are going to use the Nook as the "card reader" there is a little more risk. Two drives will pull up when connected to the pc by usb. One is the internal memory of the Nook and the other is the micro SD card. Make sure you know which is which.

    Then download and install win32disk imager and easeus partition manager on your pc.
    Next download the three files in the how to thread.
    Unzip the image file and only the image file. Then use this to burn the image to the drive that is your SD card.
    Use easeus partition manager to resize the disk you just burned to 250MB.
    Next copy the other two files to this same card.
    Safely eject the nook from the pc and unplug the usb cable.
    Finally power the Nook down and then power back up.

    The specific details are in the link provided.

    You should get lots of hits by Googling the names of the programs.

    If you don't want or can't figure out how to use standard open source software to root your device, you can buy an N2A Card (Turn Your Nook into a Full Android Tablet | Nook2Android | N2A cards) that will do it for you. Just pop in the N2A microSD card into the reader and you've got an Android Gingerbread tablet plus useful apps like the Google Play store, etc. 8GB cards start for about $35 (there are also 16 and 32gb cards), and can be bought at Fry's, from Amazon or the company website. Hope that helps.
