    Default New wallpapers aren't showing

    Feeling mighty stupid here, I added to my wallpaper folder and screen saver folder, but NOW on my settings on my nook, only the wallpapers that came with it are showing. My screensavers are there now. JUST NOT MY WALLPAPERS, PLEASE HELP. I did add an 8gb microSDHC Card and that drive shows nothing at all,not sure if it is supposed to, though.

    Hi BostonMoe You're not alone I'm also new and I've got the screensavers to show up but not my wallpaper yet! I haven't had time to work on it lately. I'm going to be searching the posts to see what I need to fix it. Good Luck! Dawn

    hmm..

    Not sure what you guys are doing wrong.

    Have you done the "check for new content" after disconnecting your nook.?

    As soon as i got my nook..
    I plugged it into my PC,
    loaded up the wallpapers that i had made myself..

    disconnected nook properly..
    and my WP's were in the WP list on nook.
    I didnt even have to use the "check for new content",
    they were just 'there'. lol

    But you guys may need to 'check for new content' on the nook,
    if you havent already.

    Hi Ahmose~Thank=you for your help. I tried a few more times and I finally did get the images to go on. It helped that I drug each item. Now I just have to fix the size on some of the images because they need to be more clear.
    Thank-you for the link to your creation. I got some of my screensavers off of that site. I like the old retro images that have funny sayings.
    When I get some spare time,...ha...ha I'd like to design some myself.
    Another question for you if you have the time to answer, why do I want to have Calibre(?) on my pc for the nook? and wondering about epub too. I haven't had time to investigate them yet. I'm not too sure about what they do. Thanks again...Happy New Year !!!!!!

    Hey Chovy,
    Sure I have time. lol

    The size you want the wallpapers on your nook to be is 600(w)x760(h).
    The screensavers should be 600x800.

    Regarding Calibre~

    Calibre is good, in my opinion/experience..
    for One: because it allows you to basically have a 'digital library/bookshelf',
    that you can pull up at anytime, look through your books,
    and take them off the shelf (send them to your nook) lol

    It's like walking up to your physical bookshelf,
    looking at all the books, and grabbing whichever sound good to you at the moment,
    and taking them with you.

    i guess it's most useful for those who have decent/large e-book collections.

    Instead of opening an "e-book" folder on your PC,
    and looking through the list of little, plain text titles...

    You can open calibre,
    and "flip" through your books, looking at the covers, seeing the authors, ratings, etc etc.
    And you can add your own infos, ratings, etc.

    Also,
    It is good (great) for what you mention next.. "ePub" format.

    "ePub" is just another format, like a PDF, or any other number of formats around today.
    But, ePub files allow you the most flexibility when it comes to actually reading the file,
    (at least on the nook).
    things like the ability to resize the text to various sizes,
    being able to navigate through chapters/"clickable links",
    uhmm..

    it is the "native format" for the nook,
    so that is what displays best.
    although you should be able to read most PDF's without an issue also..
    you just wont be able to 'customize' them as much as you may like.

    Calibre,
    allows you to convert pretty much any format you can imagine,
    into ePub format,
    so that it can be viewed on your nook as it was intended to be.

    Calibre also lets you choose between many different ereader devices..
    and,
    when it converts your files (lets say for nook),
    you will have already chosen 'nook' as your device,
    so when Calibre converts the file into ePub, it will convert it specifically to be viewed best on the nook.
    Rather than a "default" convert, which would be best for viewing, say..
    on a computer.

    When you first start Calibre,
    it will ask what you what device you will be using with it.
    and from then on..
    when you convert files..
    they will be converted to fit best on your nook.

    (sorry if im being repetitive)
    kinda overtired from reading soo much)

    Calibre was especially useful for me..
    Because over the years..
    I have accumulated thousands (literally) of ebooks,
    most all of them in PDF format.

    i knew that someday, something would come along and allow me to comfortably read them as i wished,
    without having to sit at the computer..
    (and years later...... the Universe gave us nook!) lol
    So it was very good that i downloaded and collected all the great books i saw over the years.

    So,
    since ePub is the preferred format for nook,
    All i had to do,
    is load up as many books as I want into the Calibre library,
    then simply 'flip through' them, see which ones I want to get to first,
    choose to convert all of them at once, let them convert..
    and then, from calibre, just click "send to device".

    The newly 'converted to epub' books,
    will automatically go to the proper location on your nook,
    and you are set.

    i have even converted simple .txt files (lamest to look at, ever) into great looking epubs with calibre. lol

    anything else, feel free to ask..
    if i know, ill gladly share.

    Sorry for the lengthy response..
    hopefully something in there will be useful to ya'.

    There are also some great how-to video tuts. on the Calibre website.
    I only needed to watch them like once, and was able to easily use what is shown.

    have fun!
    Happy new year to you also! thanks.
