The model number for a Kindle Fire HD is: X43Z60
It's on the back of your Kindle and is very difficult to read. I used a magnifying glass.

Susan - The Kindle Fire 2nd Gen supports immersion reading. All the Fire models currently being offered do.

Susan you purchase the Ebook then the Companion Audio Book. Once both are downloaded to your Fire touch the Books tab, open the book, touch the middle of the screen, at the bottom you should see a play button, touch it to start the Audible book reading.

Jonathan - Did you buy a used Kindle? If you did, perhaps it was reported stolen and blacklisted by Amazon.

Hey Maxine, Try charging via a Usb mains. (Most smartphone chargers will do) Your looking for (5.0V DC 1.8A) a computer usb port might not have enough juice to charge it up, keep it on charge for 4 hours, if it's not holding a charge after that, then assume the internal battery is dead. It's really easy to replace, and inexpensive. How old is you kindle and is it covered by warranty?
