  1. Would you know the NST has any limitations regarding micro SD?
    what i mean i have one 32GB Class 10 from adata but it is not recognized by NST
    how can i contact the BN support?

    Another limitation of Nooks is that BN wont accept international credit cards.
    so in that case cannot buy books and even cannot download free books
