The Fire has a micro USB port. You will need to provide the cable.
You don't need the computer to transfer the books you have bought from Amazon, they are in the "cloud".

This isn't true. None of my books have downloaded. I need help.

Amy -With wi-fi on have you gone to Settings (gear icon) and Sync?

If that doesn't work try de-registering and then re-registering your Fire. For some reason it isn't "talking" to Amazon's servers.

Amy - What? The syncing or the re-registering?

I have an e-book on my computer I'd can't get to show up on my Kindle Fire, using a USB cord. The file extension for the book is .rtf and I tried converting it to MOBI using Calibre, but still nothing. Any advice would be appreciative.

Jeffrey- Where are you putting the files when you transfer them? They need to go in the Documents file and they will show up in the Docs tab. The Fire supports AZW, TXT,PDF, MOBI, PRC, DOC, and DOCX.
