B&N Nookbooks

Please!  Help!
I have thousands of dollars invested in books I have bought for my Nook and iPad.
Now, B&N has screwed their customers: we cannot download and save all of our books to our PCs.
Is there a way I can access my "nook" books and download and save them to my PC?!

Thank You!  GadgetDude

The following info may be useful for you.

"I’m assuming you have installed Calibre for Windows, and installed the DeDRM plugin; and you’ve configured the plugin for Barnes and Noble ebooks by adding a key with a name (any name will do) your own name, and the credit card number associated with your Nook account.
If it doesn’t work I think it’s most likely that it doesn’t like the formatting of your name. I first tried
fred shadow
all lowercase, as it appears on the B&N account page; that didn’t work.
I then added two more keys with the names
Fred Shadow
Mr Fred Shadow
using the same credit card number, and one of them must have been right, as I could then import the epubs into calibre."

First: Thank You Very Much! for all of your help; but, I must apologize to you for my "newbie" behavior: I am not completely sure of what I am doing.
Thus Far:
[1] I have installed Calibre for Windows X64bit. When installed it had a B&N highlighted, so I wonder if it was installed. I guess I don't know how to use the program (I see nothing about adding a folder ?!?  Again, I apologized sincerely and pray for your patience.
[2] Downloaded DeDRM tool to my desktop. I assume I unzip it and find some way to install it to Calibre.

This is what I have done so far?!??
Thank You...GadgetDude

It will be a bit difficult for you to install old those files as it sounds a bit tricky for me also.

Before doing all of the above, do you own an android device or you have a nook reader? If yes, which model?

I own a nook that I've had for years; probably the first or second version; but it's a separate device, not a PC,

So I have lost all my purchased books?

when you install calibre, the welcome wizard asks you about the eBook reader you have... for Barnes & Noble, there is a choice of Nook and Nook Simple Reader....

is it your device?

however, I do not own a Nook device and cannot test whether it works or not and the only way to access the epub files is that you install Nook in an android device and copy them using es file explorer app to your PC.
