How to transfer camera jpegs to Nook HD w/o Computer

by rekops / December 4, 2012 1:19 AM PST

I'd like to get a Nook HD - love the screen resolution and I do a lot of reading. It seems to have less glare than the nexus 7" tablet. But, I can't figure out how to get files from my camera onto the Nook without doing it via computer. When I'm on the road, I don't want to take the computer, I want to take the nook. The Canon G1X camera uses a regular size SD card, and the Nook HD as a micro sD card reader. The camera does have a/v out and hdmi, which I could probably hook up to the nook via adapters but I don't know if the nook will be able to read the files or recognize them so I could save them onto the nook. The nook has a proprietary usb cable which I could hook into a card reader/adapter, but again, I don't know if the software exists on the nook to recognize and manage the files. Any suggestions? thanks.

Did you try an Eye-Fi?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / December 4, 2012 1:28 AM PST

I own a few EyeFi cards and I have a few tablets but not the Nook HD. Just an older Nook.

My nook color as well as the nook hd have a microsd slot. So you can check out

It appears you can see the pictures of standard JPEG.

Sorry but I don't have the Nook HD so I can't do more here.

-> Parting comment. If support is that bad they can't answer your questions, why are you considering their product?

Yes you can get micro SD adapters, I have a couple of them, I believe I purchased them at FRY'S several years ago.
