How can I download an ebook from my library, Kindle format. I can download it to my computer but it will not open.

are you trying to open with the Kindle4PC?

Are you trying to download the book to your computer and transfer it to your Kindle? If so, don't try to open the file on your computer - just download and save it. Then connect your Kindle to the computer with the USB cable, open the Kindle drive, and drag or copy the downloaded file to the Kindle's documents folder.

If you are transferring from your Kindle to your PC from your USB table, it will probably not open; that file is specific to your Kindle.

Install the Kindle for PC app, and download it from your archives.
