I have been given a Kindle WiFi. I seem not to be able to download Kindle books which I have on my PC via the USB 2 port. How can this possibly be? If it is so, I would expect in the instructions a note saying 'This device cannot be used with a computer except for powering up. My computer operating system is Windows XP.

I just try "Send to Kindle for PC". Previously, to send files to my kindle, I have to attach the files to an email and send it to Now I can do the same with a single click. Amazon!

I have an iPad 2 and use the Kindle Cloud, forget the actual app name, but there are two and I have both but find that the cloud works better.
I am not a MAC person so don't know if the Cloud works on all Apple products. All of my books are both in my Kindle and in the Cloud.

Thanks so much for the answer.

I doubt it, as Send to Kindle for PC has to work with the Windows Explorer to act as a printer or to allow you to select documents to send to PC. That kind of integration can't be done from a PC emulator on the Mac.

Qcick question. I have the send to Kindle for Pc and needless to say my friend that has a Mac is wanting it also. I have heard that there are programs that allow Macs to run Pc programs, so my question is does any one know of a program that would allow send to Kindle work on a Mac?? Thanks in advance

I've succeeded in sending a document to my Kindle...however, now any time I click on a MS Word document using Windows Explorer on my PC, it document doesn't open - the Kindle for PC program opens instead. What did I do wrong?

Download the Send to Kindle for PC thingy first. I've just donethat and "Send to Kindle" now appears when I right click a Word document.

Unfortunately, that piece is still missing. I hope they add it soon.

I read recently that Amazon had hired someone from Microsoft to manage the development of Kindle apps. I hope that means there will be some improvements. Sending docs and also collections would be helpful; sub-collections would be great too, on Kindles and apps.

When you click 'Send to Kindle', you'll get an option to choose which Kindle it will go to. See instructions here -

When you use Send to Kindle part of the process is selecting which Kindle to deliver the file to. As with most Amazon web pages, there is a drop-down box to select the target Kindle.

Send to Kindle is exactly what I wanted. I hope to discover the answer to this following question soon.

I have two kindles -- with both get the file? If not, how can I direct the sender to one Kindle or the other?

OH! I didn't consider FireFox to be an "application." Hmmmmm.... Guess I'll have to give it a try. THANKS.

You didn't read the whole sentence:

"You can send your documents using Windows Explorer or from any Windows application that allows you to print."

Sea Hag says:
It says you can send things "from Windows Explorer." So you can't use it while in FireFox?

I have send several personal documents to my Kindle Keyboard using Send to Kindle. It works great. My question is, how do I send the documents from "Manage My Kindle" to my Android device which has the Kindle reading app? I've tried clicking on "send to my," but the Android device is greyed out. It only lets me resend to the Kindle keyboard. Does anyone know if what I want to do is possible and, if so, how to do it? Thanks.

Have you downloaded Kindle for PC. When you do you will be asked to register ie with your Amazon email and password then all your Kindle books will be available when you open Kindle for PC. They will be archived though until you download them. It only takes a few minutes to get all your books. I hope that helps.

I find it interesting, no, amusing, that a Kindle which I thought is used to read books, is now being used as a mini computer like device. I refer to all but the Fire. I have two pc's, one desktop and a netbook plus this iPad2 and I imagine most Kindle owners, including the Fire, have at least a pc or Mac, so why use a Kindle reader for other than reading? I am just curious.

I can't give you specifics but there are programs that will do that. I believe some people use Calibre for that purpose. Ask around a bit and I'm sure you'll find someone who can give you specific directions. I suggest you start a new topic for your question, though.
