I had a micro SD card get corrupted and the same sequence of events is starting to occur with the Nook Color and my new(er) micro SD card. The Barnes & Noble store employee at the Nook kiosk didn't know what to make of the description of the error messages and so forth..........so it was suggested that I call the help desk.
I thought I had warranty left until May 2012 (sloppy note taking - it was March 2012 - so I may end up having paid for the "help" but I should have asked before I got into the details of what happened...........). But I'm not risking my larger (and more expensive to replace) micro SD card until I find out whether or not the reset to factory isssue did anything..........
I've been told to reboot my computer many times (and if the issue is that the computer won't turn on in the first place, then my confidence that the first level tech knows how to deal with the reported problem also shrivels away - but that was within warranty so the computer ended up being repaired for FREE).
My Nook Color was working fairly well with seven thousand plus books (Project Gutenberg classics and out of print books, free or cheap Google books, and the Baen Free Library from Fifth Imporiam - love sci fi & fantasy, as my user name *might* indicate).
I am now side loading those to the Nook Color again, typing in the 16 place password for my wi-fi encryptian, and grousing to myself that I can't really tell YET if this helped or is just making me have to enter everything again!
Are there any IT types out there who can tell me if resetting something to the factory issue really does resolve problems - or is it really the brushoff that it seemed to me the last few times I got told to do it............only to have it NOT resolve my issue.
A new hard drive, a new power supply, a new motherboard, and a new monitor did fix the issue - depending on which laptop or desktop computer got sent back for repairs.............the new monitor was something that I got off eBay because the computer was out of warranty before VorGuy complained to me about his monitor had started to burn out in vertical white stripes down the center which got wider & wider...........until he couldn't SEE any more............but he didn't mention it while it was still under warranty...............which is a VorGuy issue and not a Tech Support issue.
The etiquette qestion is "was this really supposed to be Tech Support" or was it a "brush off"? Because this morning, it really feels like I got told the equivalent of "take two aspirin and call me in the morning".
I'm staring at the Nook and wondering whether or not to bother setting up an SD card or just side load everything that will fit to the on-board memory..............
