Part I: “NOOKcolor” > Playing Music, Audiobooks, Podcasts, and Videos - Pg. 84

Chapter 6 Playing Music, Audiobooks, Podcasts, and Videos For those of you who love to read, almost nothing stirs up as much nostalgia as the thought of listening to some nice music while reading a good book and maybe sipping a nice glass of wine. Your NOOKcolor can't make wine, but it can provide the other two ingredients to this nostalgic scene. Note You can also listen to music via the online radio service, Pandora. To learn more about using Pandora, see "Playing Music with Pandora on Your NOOKcolor." Adding Audio Files to Your NOOKcolor The Music folder on your NOOKcolor is used specifically for audio files (whether on the NOOKcolor itself or on the microSD card). When you add audio files to this folder, your NOOKcolor recognizes the files and enables you to play the audio using its built-in audio player. Note Your NOOKcolor supports the following audio file types: MP3, AAC, MID, MIDI, M4A, WAV, and AMR. The best options are MP3 and AAC given their ubiquitous presence. Playing Audio on Your NOOKcolor To play audio on your NOOKcolor, you first need to copy the MP3 files to its memory or to a microSD card in your NOOKcolor. Audio files should be copied into the Music folder (My Files\Music). If your microSD card does not have a Music folder, create one before copying audio files to it. Tip If you haven't done so already, first load your music into a music player on your desktop or laptop (iTunes, Media Player, and so on). Doing so enables you to set album and artist name, and so on, which affects how easy it is to navigate your music in the Music Player on your NOOKcolor. After you copy your audio files to the Music folder, you can play them using the music player on your NOOKcolor.
