If you downloaded it, you need to use Astro if you have it or whatever file manager you have. Open the file manager and look in the downloads folder. You should find a file for Dolphin Hd that ends with "Apk". Once you've found that, just tap on it to install.

Avid. If you don't find it in downloaded, look on the bottom of the page showing your folders and look for a green box with a Dolphin in it. It may say "Com. Dolphin".

Thanks, didn't find it there. I think I will give it up for now. DH in soon. I will try again when nothing is going on. Am copying you two. I am sure it is very obvious. Maybe when I sleep on it all will be clear.
Thanks so much. Hugzzz ♥♥♥
clicked the link and download again. The browser may have just come up. LOL If it did how do I make it default.

Avid. See my most recent post. I looked in Astro on my Fire and there were two Dolphin boxes at the bottom of the file manager page, not in download. The one marked "Com Dolphin" is the one you want. Tap it and it will install. Good luck.

Thanks, guys. I should have just gone with my instincts first time and when I downloaded on FIRE and had the option open first. That is what I just did and I can find it in downloads so I am A OK.
Q, Hi, I always knew you are brilliant.

HEY!! I don't know if anyone remembers me asking a couple times what the .prc and .wbm or .wmb or whatever that extension that accompanies .mobi files. Someone told me to take them away and see. Someone told me that the ones with 0 or 1byte it should be deleted. Here's the scoop! I took out about 900 of them and put them in a file on my PC because only a fool would delete them. What happened was almost all my books that those extensions are supposed to accompany have to be downloaded again. I did download a few just to see, and yes, they came with either one of those extensions. I kept track carefully so I would know for sure, moved all the ones I took off my Fire back to my Fire, and all the books that had to be downloaded, now do not have to be. This is one of those things like I tell my daughters and grandteens about Windows, I don't know why this, but it just is.

Gevalia who has a date with her heart doctor Thurs morning. Wish me luck!!

PS I wish the above wasn't so because those files take up over 1100mgs.

JannE do you have a date with heart doctor??? IF so do not depend on luck. So much depends on the doctor. I came so close to having the wrong doctor and the wrong thing fixed. ...Take care.

JannE says:
I have extreme PAD in my right leg. This heart doctor did angioplasty on it and a little on my left leg in 2008. 'spect he is going to put a stent in this time. He said he couldn't put one in the first time because medicine I am/was taking was not compatible with the meds I have to take with a stent. My poor foot is so swollen, toes are too and are cherry red. I am too skinny to be having so much wrong!! At least I will be overnight, just me and my fire. my daughters will do the hovering thing when I go in, when I wake up from anesthesia. Such an aggravating thins!!

JannE,
A good learning experience and a smart way to do it!

The extension of the actual book file varies with if it is for a Kindle e-ink or Fire and app.

.PRC is the book file itself used by the Fire and Kindle 4PC reading apps.
.AZW is the book file extension is used by the various e-ink models.
.AZW1 is for fixed-font, fixed-formatting Topaz-type ebooks
.APNX is the real page numbers file
.AZW2 are active content games for the e-inks
.EA is (no idea)
.MBP are your bookmarks (& notes?)
.PHL may be the highlights file
.SA is (no idea)
.TAN is (no idea)
.LPR (on the Fire) is for (no idea)

Each of them *are* important, as you discovered.

I once took the time to discover what each file was for but now I've forgotten!

JannE, I am sorry the pain and glad you are getting good care. I will be hoping to hear that it takes care of the problem.

JannE- I am so sorry to hear about your health issues. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Enjoy your Kindle Fire, though, on the hospital overnight stay! Peace & Love, Joanne
