I don't know what instructions you've followed, so let me start at the
beginning. I'll assume a Windows PC. I'll assume also that you've logged
onto the Adobe website and used an Adobe ID and password to download ADE to
When you unpack your Nook, it comes ready to be registered with B&N. You
should hook it up to its power cord and when it wakes up, then plug in the
USB cord and connect it to your computer. Your computer should recognize
it, get it ready to use and then tell you that you now have a new external
hard drive that's ready to use. The Nook screen should tell you it's hooked
up to your computer as well.
With the Nook in this state, log onto the B&N site and register your Nook.
Use your Adobe ID and password - it makes things much easier. The B&N site
will register the Nook, and write a small authorization file to it. Once
the process is done, you can log off B&N. Wait a moment for the Nook to
show it's disconnected from the B&N website.
Then, open ADE. It should recognize your Nook and put it on the bookshelf
in the Library view. If this doesn't happen, several messages could be
generated, and I don't see any of them in your post. So, if you've done all
of this and it's not working, what is ADE telling you - if anything?
Thank you so much for your reply. I may be one step closer, not sure. I
tried the reverse steps you suggested and at least the computer is
recognizing the nook but calls it a camera (?) The nook said it saw the
computer in a pop up, but now it doesn't. I don't know but will keep
