Got the Paper White for Christmas and am wondering why the stylus, which works with KF, does not work? There has to be a good reason :-)

Thanks!

A capacitive stylus should work. Here's one - Marware Capacitive Stylus for Kindle Fire, Kindle Paperwhite and other Touchscreen Devices, Black

My stylus works just fine on my PW1.

I can use a stylus with my Paperwhite.

It should in fact work. Reboot the Paperwhite and then try it.

Mine works. I had to apply more pressure and make it flatter to the screen to get it to turn a page. With the KF I barely had to tap it. Thanks for all your help!

Well poop. I'm going to go back to giving advice about unimportant stuff... like how to genetically edit donkeys to make them friendlier to kids at a petting zoo. This Kindle stuff is too hard for me.
