On a windows computer, look at your computer settings (where your hard disk drives and thumb drives show up). If your Kindle is plugged in for charging it will show up here. Right click on it and when the list show up, select "Safely Remove Hardware." It should be gone.
The Owner's Instructions are inadequate for ejecting Kindle from your computer. You have to be a Geek to know how to do this, which I'm not, neither are most people. After you connect the USB cable to your computer, you have to go to Start, Devices and Printers with Windows 7. You should see a picture of a Mass Storage Sevice. It is not identified as Kindle. This is an omission in the Kindle program, in my opinion. Anyway, you right click the picture, and left click Eject. You should see the Kindle screen change from Battery Charge with the lightening bolt symbol to some usable screen. Don't go any further, and click anything else no matter what it says. You should, now, be able to go to the main Screen, and select whatever you were reading. Kindle seems to be smart enough to remember where you left off. Hope this helps.
I was trying to help my daughter with her Kindle. She couldn't connect to our wireless (was working suddenly isn't working) so I was going to connect thru my computer. Got the blue screen of death :( Don't think I'll plug it into my computer again.
SO I go to my Devices and printers as described above, mine shows up as Amazon Kindle, hit eject, and Win 7 indicates device safely removed. However nothing chages on screen, If I plug it back in, I get all same info as before. The instructions on screen say Please keep your cable attached but it doesn't recognize it has been ejected.
Found the solution for Windows 7: If you have a Kindle and Windows 7 PC, you will bump into this: No matter what you do and try to eject your Kindle from PC using "Safely remove hardware", you Kindle will still remain connected to your PC, which means you can't use it while charging through the USB.
The simple solution to this is that you should use "Eject" option from Windows explorer by right click on the drive.
Hello! My Kindle Fire is connected to my laptop, which is running Windows 7. To eject, I went to Start > Computer, and found Kindle in the list of drives. However, when I right-click it, "Eject" is not an option. Any suggestions?
