    Default Charging NOOK with PC USB and using at same time?

    When I plug my NOOK into my PC, it SAYS that I can use my NOOK and continue charging by "ejecting" the NOOK drive on my computer. This doesn't seem to work - I 'eject' per my PC but the NOOK continues to show this screen and is unresponsive. B&N chat said to plug into the wall outlet. Well yes I can do that but not the point. Is it possible to charge with PC and use NOOK at same time? Anyone have success with this?
    Thanks

    Iam not an expert but I believe the answer is, you can only charge AND read when plugged into the wall outlet. Will not work with the computer. Hope I am not steering you wrong......

    Yes, it is possible with the Nook classic. The Nookcolor will not charge while in use and connected to your computer.
    The important question is why your Nook does not eject properly from your computer. It should revert to the normal user mode a few seconds after ejecting.

    Nook classic cannot be read while plugged into pc. At that point it's recognized as "storage device" by your pc. anyways it takes a LOOOONNNNggg time to charge that way.

    Nook Classic CAN be read while plugged into the PC (I do it all the time..)
    The above poster was correct, the real question here is why your nook continues to show that screen after you click on the "Eject" on your computer...
    Not to be an ass, but you ARE going into "My Computer, Right-Clicking on your Nook, and left clicking on "Eject" in the menu that comes up... right?

    The PC cannot charge the Nook. But it will charge while plugged into the wall, and you can still use it.
    I am me in a more literal sense.

    Be sure to look out for the Eastern Diamondback Rattle Sparrow.

    Lanarian is right! The nook will charge and you can read it at the same time, but you have to open My Computer and right click on the nook drive and left click on eject. Within seconds the charging page goes away and you are back at your main page. Thank you Lanarian--i tried it and it works!
