    Default pc won't recognize nook color

    I bought the nook color today and am really excited about it. I can browse the web with my home wi-fi just fine but can't get my pc to recognize it when I plug it in. I have a 3 year old pc with xp operating system. The "found new hardware wizard" window appeared when I plugged in the nook but when I tried to use the wizard to install, it failed with the message: "Cannot Install this Hardware...the wizard cannot find the necessary software." The nook didn't come with any install disk and I figure my computer doesn't have the necessary driver pre-installed. I will call the store/support tomorrow but any advice till then? I am pretty computer savvy, but this is my first nook.

    I posted too soon because once once I closed the wizard, the found new hardware balloon came on again and I could see the drive. I think it is working fine, but, again, I may be posting too soon -- but I will play around with it some more.
