Transfer from a Computer to Your Kindle

If you don't have a Wi-Fi connection, you can transfer books, magazines, or newspapers from a computer to your Kindle via USB. To borrow some public library books, you need to transfer them from a computer to your Kindle.

After you purchase books and periodicals, they are stored in the Cloud and are available for transfer from Manage Your Content and Devices . To transfer content from your computer to your Kindle, use the USB cable you received with your device.

  1. Visit Manage Your Content and Devices
  2. Connect your device to your computer with the USB cable. Your device will appear in the same location on your computer that external USB drives appear.
    • Windows: Your device will appear in the Computer or My Computer folder.
    • Mac: Your device will appear on the desktop.
  3. Open the device folder, and then open the Documents or Internal Documents folder.
  4. Locate the downloaded file on your computer, and then drag and drop the compatible file into the appropriate folder. Depending on your device type, the folder names may vary.
    • For example, on Kindle Paperwhite, move books to the Documents folder. On Kindle Fire tablets, move books to the Books folder.
  5. Safely disconnect your device from your computer once the transfer is complete.
