Image Writer for Windows

SO many problems: please help.

Asked by stephanie kaloi on 2012-12-23

Hi all! Here's what's going on:

I am following this tutorial: http://lifehacker.com/5889158/turn-a-99-nook-into-a-fully-fledged-android-tablet-in-four-easy-steps to turn a Nook Simple Touch into an Android Tablet.

Here's what I have:

1) Nook Simple Touch
1) 16GB microSD card
1) this microSD card reader: http://www.amazon.com/IOGEAR-MicroSD-Reader-Writer-GFR204SD/dp/B0046TJG1U/?tag=gmgamzn-20

I have downloaded TouchNooter.

I have downloaded every single version of win32 image writer and can't get any of them to work. Here are all of the things that have happened:

-- I always run as admin
-- the device isn't recognized
-- sometimes the device is recognized, but then the program is "not responding"
-- I've removed win32 image writer and then put it on the C: drive and run as admin
-- I've tried every version of win32 image writer available for download and always downloaded the binary versions

This just will not work for me. I'm sure the answer is obvious, but I'm not familiar with all of this and I can't find it. I'm on Windows 7, 64 bit. I am happy to answer any and all questions if someone can try to walk me through the process. At this point, I can't uninstall win32 image writer because it's not showing up as one of the installed programs, so I've just been deleting it from the desktop or the C: drive each time.

I'm going to be in and out of the house today, but I'll be able to work on this some more tonight. I really appreciate any help, and feel free to ask ANY questions because as I said: I'm super unfamiliar with this. I understand what I need to do, but not why the program isn't working for me. I'm hoping to have this set up for my husband by Christmas.

Thanks so much!!

Oh, and at various points I have received errors 5 & 8.

Sorry for not replying earlier.

Using the IOGear to read and write SD Cards, can you read and write to them with Windows File Manager? If not, I suspect that is the issue. I have an IOGear multi-card reader, but it doesn't work with some of the newer SD cards. I ended up buying a newer Sony multicard reader.
