    Green newbie,

    Hello everyone, let me start out by saying I know nothing about the nook color so is there a section in the forum "Nook using CM7 for dummies"?
    Okay I was able to load the nook color using the sd card I purchased with CM7, connects to the web fine. Its my wifes nook and she wants to download
    audio books to listen to while she works. Can't seem to download and install anything, looking for some help or instructions.:confused:

    Hello and welcome. The Nook Color is a good choice and there is an extensive section here covering it. We will get this thread moved to the Nook section where you will get more help. In the mean time take a look here for all things Nook Nook.

    What happens when you touch the Market app? Do you get any messages or does it take you to the Market? Once in the market are you seeing any messages like "device not compatible"?

    You should simply be able to launch the Market app then browse for the app you want. Once you find it you will click to download and then click to install. The app will then appear in your app drawer.

    "press ok to reboot into ClockMod Recovery" so thats what I did? Now what?

    Went into market apps and forced it to stop, cleared cache and now when I tap market app I am back in the market.

    Anytime I go to an app and try and download I get an error message!

    Well, that's not supposed to happen. Instead of downloading MP3s to the Nook directly why don't you try copying a couple over to internal memory or onto an SD card and then using a player to see if they work.

    So it definitely sounds like you are having some issues. That was the correct procedure to fix the Market. As far as the app downloading error, are you logged in and syncing to a google account? Settings>Accounts & sync and then a google account with a green circle and arrows? Also go Settings>Applications and check/uncheck and recheck the Unkown sources box.

    Why when I go to market place to download any app I get an error message?

    At the accept & download tab underneath is permissions, storage, system tools, service that cost money etc.. do I need to set something in these fields?

    Permissions should just be informational there shouldn't be any fields to enter. You are suing the standard Android Market correct?

    https://market.android.com/ (but through the app)
