Welcome to another Good e-Reader Video! In this video we go over many of the questions we have been getting on our e-Reader Blog and e-Reader Youtube Channel. We show you how to get Adobe Digital Editions eBooks you have copied over to appear on your Book Shelf. We then go into how to copy music over to the Nook Color. Then we wrap it up and show you how to get different wallpapers on your e-Reader, both scrolling and static ones.
Firstly, we begin the tutorial by addressing a common question we get on when you plug your Barnes and Noble Nook Color via USB into your computer, nothing happens. This is due to your Nook being in the Android Stanby mode, we show you how to resolve this.
Secondly we show you Adobe Digital Editions. This is a free program you can download from the internet, and is most useful in copying over eBooks you have bought from other stores outside Barnes and Noble and have DRM. You want to for sure make sure the books you are copying over are in ePub format, which is supported by many stores including, Boarders, Kobo, Barnes and Noble and independents such as Smashwords. We show you how to copy eBooks over to your device via Digital Editions and then show you in detail on how to create a shelf and get the Book to appear there, rather then MY Files.
Then we show you how to copy music files in MP3 format to your Nook Color via Windows Explorer and then show you where the Music player is located.
Finally, we show you have to copy Wallpapers to your Nook Color and give you tips on different sizes. There are two different kinds of Wallpapers you can use on your Nook Color, Scrolling ones and Static Images. Scrolling wallpapers will move as you scroll from screen to screen, the file size for these is 768×1024 the static wallpaper is 600×1024. If your images on your computer are not these sizes you can download image editing programs such as Adobe Photoshop or others. You can also browse the internet via google Images and under the advanced option, key in specific height/width to find images that meet the Nook Color criteria.
Those are the main issues we cover but we show you various other facets as well, hopefully everyone finds this tutorial somewhat useful!
