I can connect to my PC, barely, but it won't transfer files. It'll stick at "Discovering files." I have no idea how to fix this.

I have no idea what you're doing that causes it to "discover files." Here are instructions for transferring books via usb cord. You have to follow them exactly from the very first step:

What kind of PC do you have? What do you mean "I can connect to my PC, barely,"?

My computer runs Windows 7 64-bit. The computer occasionally recognizes the Fire and lets me dig through the Fire's files, but when I try to transfer something it won't go. It'll hang at the first step of transferal, "Discovering Files." It won't go farther than that.

I have Win 7 64 bit and I don't have any problems connecting. I just click on the Windows icon, then Computer, then on the drive that's assigned to the Kindle.

I don't understand why you're "digging through the Fire's files." If you're trying to transfer from the PC to the Fire, read the link I provided above. If you're trying to transfer from the Fire to the PC, do what I suggested in the first paragraph of this post.

Yeah, I just tried your suggestion. It didn't work. Any other ideas?
