Nook read 37 files in my ePub as 37 chapters instead of 11 chapters as set out in toc.ncx (NCX file) -- the ToC as presented by Nook lists filenames for all the chapters that do not have navPoint / navLabel set in toc.ncx, it looks like:

Chapter 1
Chapter 2 

Chapter 1 and 2 are mapped to f01.xhtml and f04.xhtml respectively in the .ncx file.

Adobe Digital Editions and Calibre read the toc.ncx correctly, and have page breaks at new files (intended behavior). Any idea of a workaround? It appears to be Nook-specific.

epubcheck-3.0b5 returned no errors.

  • Which Nook are you using? The different Nook devices all seem to have slightly different quirks--and Nook in general seems to be one of the quirkiest of the major reading systems.

  • @jorouke 1)How was the ePub created? 2) Can you provide a screenshot of the .ncx file and what it looks like in ADE? Commented Mar 7, 2014 at 23:39
