Can anyone tell me how to transfer some of the songs I have on my Windows media library to my Kindle Fire? I tried the sync function (like I would with transfering songs to a MP3 player) but my computer kept telling me to connect a device. I tried to upload my songs to Amazon cloud but it tells me many of my songs are not supported. Example: I bought Adele's CDs and none of her songs could be transfer to my Kindle. I don't want to buy her albums again as MP3 download from Amazon. I bought some MP3 from Amazon's digital download and I was able to download those to my Kindle.

If it won't let you upload them to the Cloud they aren't in the correct format to play on your Fire. They have to be in mp3 format so you'd have to convert them to play.

I'm trying to transfer songs on my PC to my Kindle Fire via the micro USB cable, but when the files supposedly transfer, everything's there except the actual song! It shows the titles of albums, song titles, etc. but the times are all 0:00 and it gives me a "Playback Error" bubble. I don't want to use the Cloud to sync everything because the Cloud takes ALL of the songs on my PC and I just want to pick and choose which ones.

Any suggestions?

I had this problem earlier but have since fixed it by downloading the free iTunes app onto my computer, import the songs from my CDs onto the iTunes library (and iTunes turns them into the MP3 format automatically once the songs are rip onto the library. You don't need to do anything else.). With the songs in MP3 format, you can either upload it onto the Amazon Cloud or transfer them onto your Kindle directly via the USB cable. The playback error is because your songs are not in the MP3 format.

@Stephanie: You can change the internal settings in iTunes so that it exports them as mp3 files. I have not done it, but I read that in these forums some time ago.

Before you start yelling at us (by using capital letters), you could have contacted Amazon Kindle CS to get help from them. we are mainly Kindle owners here, not from Amazon.

Just cancel that message asking for drivers. There aren't any drivers and your PC will treat it like it does a flash drive.
