So I've got my Nook plugged into my Mac and it shows a "No Name" device for my additional memory. I try to rename it, but instead of clicking rename in Finder, I accidentally click "Remove from Sidebar".

How do I get it back on the Finder's sidebar?


See if it shows up under sidebar in Finder Preferences. Click on your desktop, open the Finder menu and select preferences


  • Clicking hard disks brought it back. Many Thanks. – John Nov 29 '12 at 16:08

After removing the sidebar item, if it does not disappear, just logout and login.
