I have done it but only once and can't remember how. I have pictures I want to put on but can't find the usb connection to send them to. I have moved my USB to all different ports but none are recognized. Only the dvd drive and it won't work as it opens the dvd and asks for a disc. Please send me directions or point me to the discussion. Thanks

Connect the cord to USB port and wait - sometimes it takes a few minutes for the comp to recognize it.

If not, you can search for new hardware and it should appear.

Or you can read the directions that come with the kindle instead of asking someone else to copy/paste them which would be more work for them and less for you...meaning, of course, that you are quite lazy. If that doesn't do it for you, you can always contact amazon customer support as it's their job.

Smurfette, if you are asking about the Fire, after connecting the USB cable, you must turn it on and slide the yellow/orange arrow from right to left to wake it up, then it should create a new drive letter.
