I'm not at home right now and I'm having issues transferring books onto my kindle (3rd generation) with the USB Cable. I don't have the 3G one with the wireless into it, so I either need to do it via wireless or the USB cable. And right now the wireless isn't an option.
When i'm at home i use my router and it's not problem... but I'm not home and not sure when I'll be getting home and I want to upload some new books.
I've got the link on how to do it, I just don't quite understand the directions. Goodness knows why they couldn't make this easier to do and have more pictures of the step by step process..
I plus the USB cable into my kindle and into my laptop. I eject it from my computer per instructions.
Windows Vista and 7: Click on the Start button, select "Computer" from the options, right-click on the Kindle drive icon and select "Eject" from the pop-up menu.
When i do that it goes from Kindle (G:) to Removable Disk (G:)
Now the next part is where I get stuck...
To move files to and from Kindle:
1. Connect your Kindle to your computer as described above. Your Kindle should appear on your computer in the same location you would normally find an external USB drive.
2. Use your computer's file browser to drag and drop files to and from Kindle.
3. When finished, use your computer's undock, eject, or unmount feature to remove your Kindle.
Remember, Kindle will only recognize transferred files if:
* File types are listed in the Files Kindle Recognizes section below.
* File are transferred to the correct folder for their type.
* Files are free of digital rights management software.
I dont get the drop and drag, I know how to do drop and drag just not with this. It doesn't want to work for me. I can't save books on to the "computer" file area, I just don't know what i am doing wrong and how to fix it.
Can you please dumb down the instructions or help me more step by step on what to do. Oh and my complaint would be to make it much easier to transfer data via USB cable to the kindle... this is crazy that it's this hard... ok rant off.....
Thanks for the help !!!
