I am trying to decide if I should get a Kindle does the music part work? I have so many songs on my I lose those? And, if I have amazon prime do I get songs for free and then I don't have to worry about itunes?

Amazon Prime is for streaming movies only.

I was able to upload all my mp3s from iTunes to the Amazon Cloud. Now I can play those with the Cloud Player on my Droid X and will be able to play those from the Fire. Plus, you can connect your USB cable to your computer and move the mp3s from your computer to the Fire.

Am considering buying Kindle Fire. Will I be able to play music in my car via my Kindle Fire? If so, what accessories would I need? Thanks

You'd likely need the music loaded on the Kindle Fire since you wouldn't have an Internet connection to stream the music. You would also need an Aux jack on your car stereo and a cable between the Fire's headphone jack and your stereo Aux jack.

I have a question about this. If i upload music from iTunes to my Amazon Cloud, do I lose the music on iTunes?

No, why would that happen? You're just making another copy.

SeaLevel--yes, I realize the music would have to be downloaded onto the Kindle, so my questions are:

1 -- Is it possible to store audio files on the Kindle Fire?
2 -- Is there a jack and cable available to connect Fire to Car Stereo?

SeaLevel274 already answered that. Yes, you can put audio files on the Fire, and you need an aux jack in your car and a cable between the aux jack and the headphone jack on the Fire (or a cassette adapter if you have an old car like mine).

Does the kindle Fire have AUX?

AUX (Auxiliary) connection would be the Headphones Jack.
also - the Aux Jack is a double jack of the same configuration like the end of a headphones jack, just TWO of them.(one on each end of course). the AUX Jack on the car stereo is the same, it is an INPUT jack, whereas the headphones jack, on your phone, iPod, Fire, home stereo, are OUTPUT Jacks.
you can get a 4 or 6' aux cord from Radioshack for about 4-8 bucks.

Can I stream music via wifi to my airport express which connects to my stereo, as I do from itunes on my laptop or ipad?

No, the Fire does not currently support streaming music out to other devices. You can get pure audio via the headphone jack. You can also mount it as a USB drive and access the music directly from the Music directory on the Fire, but it must be directly connected to a PC via a USB cable.

I had the impression that amazon had a library from where you could check out as many books That you wish? If so were do I go to check what books are available or is that not true. I see they have some books but I thought that there was a bigger verity .

Posted on Dec 11, 2011 9:14:27 AM PST
No, that is not true at all. Amazon has a lending program for Prime members that allows you to borrow one book a month from a limited selection. You may also be able to check out ebooks from your local library.

There is no Amazon library where you could check out as many as you wish. There is a Prime Kindle Lending Library from which Prime members can rent one book a month on their kindle. Prime costs 79 dollars a year.

Libray books are available for kindles now. Go to and enter your zip code to see what is available to you.

There are also 12V adapters that use FM transmitters to play music from your devices if your vehicle does not have an aux jack, via your FM radio.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 18, 2011 5:00:52 AM PST
Yes. Amazon provides an MP3 downloader that can send music from your Amazon cloud account to iTunes on your computer. Next time you sync your iPod, your music will be copied to it.

This capability means that the Amazon MP3 store is another source of music for iDevices, which is nice, because Amazon often has lower prices for the same titles.

This still does not tell me how to put the music onto my Kindle Fire. You're just telling me that I can, but not how to do it.

If music is uploaded to your cloud drive you can easily download it to the fire within the music area. You can also manually lost music onto the fire via usb.

It's not clear what you mean by "this". As mentioned, you can download music from your cloud storage if you've uploaded your music there, or you can copy it from your computer to the \music folder on your Kindle via a USB cable.
