Barnes and Noble's e-reader, Nook, is not just limited to e-books. You can add personal content, such as pictures, music and documents, to the device. To add personal content, you need to connect your Nook to your computer and download your pictures to the e-reader.
Turn your Nook on by pressing the "Power" button at the top of the back panel.
Plug your Nook into your computer using the USB cord provided. This opens the "AutoPlay" window on a Windows 7 system. Select "Open Folder to View Files Using Windows Explorer" and click the "OK" button.
Right-click the Windows "Start" button on your computer and select "Explore." Navigate to and open the folder where your images are saved.
Click a picture and drag it to the Nook folder. This places the picture in "My Documents" on your Nook, which you can access via "My Library" on the "Home" menu of your Nook.
Tips & Warnings
- Always eject your Nook from your computer prior to disconnecting it by right-clicking the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the System Tray. Choose "Remove Hardware Safely" and disconnect your Nook.
