Instructions on How to Transfer Downloaded E-Book Files from your Computer to Your Kindle with a USB Cable.
Things You Will Need:
- Computer / Laptop with an E-Book(or E-Books) in it.
- Amazon Kindle
- USB cable that is connected to your Kindle charger
After you have downloaded the E-Book into your computer.
1. Remove the electrical plug from the end of your Kindle charging cord. This will reveal a USB connector that you can then plug into any USB port on your computer.
2. Plug the other end of the Kindle charging cord into the charging port on your Kindle. Your Kindle can be on or off for this part of the process. The Kindle's charging port doubles as the data transfer port. When your Kindle is plugged into the computer you will be able to both recharge its battery from the computer's battery and transfer files.
3. Wait until your Kindle automatically goes into USB drive mode and appears in your computer's system as a removable mass-storage device, just like a Flash Drive or External Hard Drive or a DVD / CD would.
4. Double-click on the Kindle's icon to open a window displaying its various folders. Locate the folder designated for the file type you want to transfer from the computer to the Kindle. Note that only certain file types--.PDF, .AZW, AZW1, .TXT, .MOBI, .PRC, .AA, .AAX and .MP3--are currently readable by the Kindle as of early 2010.
5. Locate the files you want to transfer on your computer's hard drive, then drag and drop them into the appropriate Kindle folder.
6. Disconnect your Kindle from the USB cable. It will automatically return to wherever you may have been reading before you connected it to the computer.
