Deleting Unwanted Ebooks
- Attach your Nook to your computer
- Go to your Nook drive
- Open the My Files or My Documents folder
- Double click on the Book folder
- Find the folder for the book you want to delete (it's probably called Unknown) and highlight the book
- Hit delete
Transferring Files to the Nook
- Connect your Nook to your computer.
- Transfer files to your My Files folder (for the older Nook, transfer the files to My Documents)
The Nook Color does not have a well-integrated pdf reader; you can read the files, but navigating the pages is extremely clunky. The older Nook does a much better job of allowing you to read and navigate between pages. I've not seen the Nook Tablet yet to know whether the pdf reader is better. If you have a Nook Color and the file you download is pdf, you can do one of two things:
- Go to the Nook App store and pay $1.99 for ezPDF Reader, which will make reading pdfs on the Nook a much better experience.
- Use the free open source Calibre software to convert your pdfs to EPUB: http://calibre-ebook.com/
