Is anyone else having problems with Downloading certain books on the Fire? I have had a total of 3 books now that aren't downloading. They will download on the Kindle 3 but not on the Fire. The cover of the book shows up but not the content. It is blank. I have found that I keep going back to the Kindle 3 to read books more and more often. The Fire seems to work well as a tablet but not as a library. Anyone else?

Where are you ordering them from? If from your PC then you need to select your Fire under the deliver to option.

TripleMom, I had that problem if I did not let the Fire go through the complete sync, ie: moving books/deleting books from the carousel before it was finished. I had to delete them from the device, then add them from the archives, which was not a problem as I had them list by date as opposed to by author.

It may sound like a dumb qestion but are they Amazon books?
And you are touching the cover and alollowing the book to download?

I had a couple of books that would not load - tried all the tricks mentioned on the discussion boards. Finally sent an em to Amazon customer service (even though the books were from and had a response back within two hours. They went in and "re-pushed" the books to my Kindle Fire and all is good.

Easy reslolution. Back up any non amazon content... music, pictures, documents ect. Contact customer service, I used the customer service chat online. They will walk you throught a factory reset. Fixed all my books that were not showing up on the fire.

I just had this same problem. Not sure why it started but downloaded 6 books in a row with the problem. Resetting back to factory settings has seemed to work though.

I purchased a book from Amazon and it downloaded to a Cloud Reader rather than to my Kindle? Why did this happen and how do I get it onto my Kindle?

I'm an author and trying to download another book on kindle. I've carefully read all the directions, but have a problem. I begin each chapter at the top of the page, but 3 chapters on the downloaded preview version begin in the middle of the page. What's up with that?
