I recently bought a Kindle Paperwhite 3G Kindle Paperwhite 3G, 6" High Resolution Display with Next-Gen Built-in Light, Free 3G + Wi-Fi The marketing spiel says it will hold 1,100 books.
On the Kindle itself, On Device, My Items indicate 81 items. When I plug my Kindle into my Macbook Pro, it displays as an external device, where Kindle --> documents --> Get Info indicates 132 items, in a combination of folders and azw3, azw, and mobi files.
When I select Kindle --> documents --> Get Info, it indicates 387MB consumed with 502 items. HOWEVER, when I select Kindle --> Get Info, it indicates Format: MS-DOS (FAT32), Capacity 1.42GB, Used 1.39GB, and only 27.2MB left.
So, MUCH, MUCH less than the 1,100 books capacity as advertised. The VAST bulk of the books are purchased books from Amazon anyway.
Is there a large collection of hidden files that are not showing up on the Mac consuming space? In summary, what do I need to do to get the 1,100 book capacity as advertised by Amazon?
