so I bought a few MP3 songs on Amazon and it's in my MP3 download file but I'm not sure how to get it on my Kindle. I keep hearing about Amazon Cloud but as you can tell I'm not very computer/technologically literate. So my question is how do I do it and is it even worth it?

Open MyComputer. One of the devices will say "Kindle". Open that device. Inside you will find a folder called "Music". Just drag and drop the MP3 files from your computer folder where the songs are stored to the Music folder on your Kindle. Then, from the main menu on Kindle go to "Experimental". Open that an you will find the MP3 player. VERY primitive, but it does play MP3 files.

I purchased an album through I tunes, cut and pasted the songs into the music folder for my kindle touch with 3g. When i go to play the music, i get a message that i have no MP3 files in my music folder. I also cut and paste an audible book into the kindle audible folder but the book is not playing on my kindle. I can't find it.
How do i correct these issues?

Probably because your files are not MP3 but in another format.

Music bought through iTunes is not in the MP3 format. You will have to convert the files. Not sure about the audible book.

I didn't even know that it could play music, so it's a plus for me :) I just can't figure out how. I copied a song to the Music folder, but i can't find it in the Kindle itself. Google sent me here.

I guess you guys needed to get the Kindle fire if you wanted a better sound? I'm just really hoping it will play audiobooks too, they're my migraine buddies! If anyone can help, i'll be so grateful!!

dragged mp3 files that I bought through amazon and exist in the "cloud" to my music folder in my kindle touch, and they show up when I look at it on my computer, but nothing shows up on my kindle. I made sure I followed the directions correctly, and they ARE plain old mp3 files, which is what all music bought on amazon digitally is. I'm about to return the damn thing, it's frustrating for other reasons as well, such as my personal documents not showing up either, and when reading it often skips chapters instead of turning the page, the thing is so sensitive. ARRRGGGG

After a couple months of low use, the MP3 player is not working well - sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. Pressing "play" looks like it work, but no sound comes out. This is very frustrating, and disappointing. Should I consider my Touch to be a piece of crap and throw it into the Hudson?

Is the volume turned up?

If you want a MP3 player buy one. A kindle is a reader and a good one. It doesn't do everything.

You think an ebook reader is a piece of crap because it doesn't work like an MP3 player? Should I throw away my iPod nano because it doesn't read ebooks?

ALl you have to do is dump the mp3 files in the main documents folder. It will appear as single track in the list. You can then add the tracks to a collection. The Player built into the Reader interface allows fast forward, rewind and position retention.

Here's the deal - two things - Amazon made an E-Book reader. E-Books. With E-Ink display. You know, for reading digital books... They included the ability to listen to audiobooks, so the fact that they added in a basic feature so that you can have background music while reading is bonus. Second - it is in *experimental*. Same as the web browser. I would laugh in your face if you complained that the web browser didn't play flash video, so why is the Kindle Touch - with no memory card slot and only 4GB storage - having a basic MP3 player such a bad thing? I have used the MP3 player on my Kindle Keyboard AND Kindle Touch and they both suit my needs perfectly, in that they provide background music. The sound quality is pretty decent too, and yeah, while there could be a few features implemented, I would rather see effort put into things like ePub support, more memory, optional your-choice screensavers, and maybe even support for books from B&N (not that I have any, but it would make it easier to migrate to the Kindle).

Just as a heads up to Amazon: Back when I gave Rhapsody a trial, they had an offer out to "buy back" or whatever you call it any music you had in itunes. Again, I never had iTunes, but it provided a way to get your complete iTunes library in your Rhapsody account, making the switch seamless, and also gave the impression they were willing to "make the first step" in trying to get your business. Just sayin :)
