Background: I bought a Nook Color (certified pre-owned from B&N) which came with 2.5.0 software. I want to be able to install non-BN approved apps, so I wanted to root this. To do so, I first used a 4 GB Transcend class 6 microSD card. I downloaded the file 4gb_clockwork-0.1-ext4.tar.gz, used winzip to unzip it, then used win32 to write the image to the card (I did a quick format of the card before writing the image). I then copy and pasted gapps-gb-20110828-signed.zip and update-cm-7.1.0-encore-signed.zip to the card. Once in Clockwork Mod on the Nook, I installed the cm7 from zip, then the gapps from zip, unmounted the SD card, and rebooted.
Installation seemed as expected; everything installed, but I got frequent "android.process.media" error messages ("force close"), especially anytime I tried to use wifi. Needless to say, the Android Market didn't work. Nothing enabled me to get back online. So, I reset to factory (interrupted boot 8x) and used it that way for a bit.
I decided to give this another shot, especially as several people seemed to think that using a different SD card worked. I happened to also have a 2 GB SanDisk microSD card (though no micro-to-regular adapter, so I had to use the Transcend adapter). I assume it is class 2, since it has no number in a circle on it. I formatted it with the Panasonic SD formatter program, then I did the same as above, except using the file 2gb_clockwork-188.8.131.52.img.gz.img.gz.img.gz instead of the 4gb file above. Installation was again problem-free except that at the beginning I got the android.process.media multiple times during setup. Once things were running, I didn't get that message at all, and wifi was working fine (was able to browse web, etc.). However, if I try running Android Market, I get the android.process.media error again, and the program fails to run. I tried clearing the data from Android Market, and now when I try to run it I just get an error saying the program crashed.
So... any ideas?

Also make sure you are using the latest CM7.1 stable or a recent nightly as those builds now have fixes included in them for the android market. Your mod version in your avatar says 2.5.0?
Also if you are using clockworkmod to mount your CM7 onto your card make sure it is the lastest Clockworkmod available.
Remember you will mount your .gapps file just like you mounted your cyanogenmod onto your card, the process is similar. If you are still having problems and have this figured out already let others or me know in this thread and I or others will get back to you. Lots of people overlook these simple steps, like using the latest .gapps or cyanogenmod builds.
If you got cyanogenmod up and running fine like you stated you will write your .gapps file onto the ROOT of your card, not in the boot partition of your card, and then using clockworkmod you will mount that file onto your card just like you did to mount cyanogenmod.
You will know you have mounted your .gapps file correctly after rebooting your nook with your microcard mounted in your nook, you should then get the android wizard help screen to get connected to the android marketplace.

You can mount that .gapps file through manual recovery also if you are having problems getting it up and going through clockworkmod. Check my thread here with videos on how that is done. At the bottom of box 3 is the link to the rest of her videos. http://forum.cyanoge...ot-my-new-nook/
Sometimes changing your method will help you, I see it time and time again with people having problems getting files mounted with clockworkmod. Some have better luck using manual recovery to mount those files on the nook through the linux screen.
Also check and see if your .gapps file is not corrupted, use that gapps file in the link I gave you above. Check the numbers on it. It should be a gapps-gb-20110828-signed.zip file, Make SURE its the latest one with the numbers 20110828, its a 6,410 KB package. Might want to delete the .gapps file on the root of your card, then download that file again off of the internet and then write it again to your card. You do not unzip that file on your computer, just drag and drop the compressed zip file straight onto your card
Make sure you not putting that .gapps file in with your boot files, it goes on the ROOT of your card, it doesn't go in with the URAM or the UDISK , dont mount that file onto your card with winimage or whatever software you used to make your card into a boot.
If you are up on all this I will check back on this thread in a few hours. Others are welcome to help also.

Try this marketplace fix.
Start Nook Color Tools.
Select the "All Settings" button.
Unplug your NOOKcolor from computer. (If Plugged in.)
Choose "Manage Applications" from the list.
Select the "All" tab.
Scroll down to "Market" and select it.
Tap "Force stop".
Tap "Clear cache".
Tap the Back button if you have SoftKeys running, else swipe right to left on the status bar at the bottom of the screen (from the clock to the book icon).
Scroll up to "Google Services Framework" and select it.
Tap "Clear data".
Tap "Force stop".
Press the n button to return to your launcher.
At the "An error has occurred" message, tap "OK".
Hold your power button to turn off your NOOK Color from the menu.
Turn your NOOK Color back on and give it a moment to find your WiFi connection.
Start Market again, and the problem is resolved.

I'm a real noob to this, but the problem you're having is the same I'm having too. Could you tell me in a little more detail to fix this up the way you did? Many thanks!!
