What kind of Kindle, and what are you trying to download?

An old Kindle Keyboard, Wi-Fi, 6" E Ink Display sans WiFi (not working). I got it from a friend who cleaned the memory after he bought a new bright shiny. I got an even older computer that is a little slow and can't run download strait to my kindle.

Ok, go to Manage Your Kindle. Find a title you want to download. Next to it, you will see a drop-down menu labeled Actions (assuming you have the old format). A choice on that menu will be Deliver to my... Choose Transfer via computer. Then select the Kindle from the drop-down list that will appear and click ok. Repeat for each title (don't do too many at once - it's bad for the Kindle).

If you have the new format for the MYK page, Deliver to my . . .should appear on one of the buttons that will highlight when you click to the left of the title.

Now you can attach the Kindle to your computer with the USB cord, and drag and drop the books to the Documents folder on the Kindle.

If your connectivity is so unreliable that you can't download a tiny e-book file, you really need to have AT&T address the problem. They're taking your money to provide you with a service, after all.

If your Kindle isn't registered, you can't download any books for it.

I think it is time to contact Kindle support. They will troubleshoot without charge - even out of warranty units.

Click on help at the top or bottom of any Amazon page. Click on the Contact us button on the right of the next page. Answer the questions and the correct contact info is shown. I suggest using the phone for quickest troubleshooting.
