    If you saw 4 files on the sdcard after flashing and were able to copy your rom/gapps files to it, there's probably nothing wrong with the card.

    Sounds like you may have a Nook Tablet. Do you have a microphone (little) hole on the top, opposite side from the headphone jack? The tablet has a mic, but not the Nook Color.

    Don't think so would be cool because i got it off crags list...
    i checked the model number its BNRV200 which if for the nook color
    it also says nook color when it boots

    Just so i know im not loosing it you make the sd card put it in the nook then turn it on right.
    no special buttons don't plug it into the PC etc.

    The bootable card (this guide) boots w/o pushing any buttons.

    A bootable card with a rom on it, is different. It has a boot menu.

    Plug the card in your computer and make sure you can see the files on it.

    Maybe you bought a NC with a bad sdcard slot?

    It plays what videos? Videos on the sdcard?

    If you copy something to a sdcard and you can view/open/play it on your NC, then I would think the card slot is functioning.

    Again, if you plug the sdcard into your computer, do you see at least 4 files on it? (Only 4 if you haven't copied a rom or other files to it.)

    Don't plug it into your phone, that's asking for trouble.

    Usb card readers are cheap and work the best for flashing img files. The best deals are online tho, which means waiting a week.

    I moved this to it's own post since it's getting involved. :D
