The book did download to my nook color. It took quite some time before it appeared. I was on the barnes & noble site and went under nookbooks. I purchased the book and there is a button that says download. I am beginning to wonder if I am supposed to hook up my nook color and then download. The store manager at barnes and noble told me that when I order a book online it will automatically appear on my nook color. I thank you for all the time and trouble I have put everyone through. Maybe these ebooks are not supposed to be downloaded on the computer and only on the ereader.
