If you ever wish to remove the microSD card, turn the Nook Color off, access the slot, then push the card in. The card will pop out of the slot, allowing you to remove it. If you want to remove the micro SD card without powering the device off, you can go to Settings > Device Info > SD Card and tap Unmount SD card. Data loss may occur if you try to remove an unmounted SD card while the Nook is powered on.
