Add Photos and Personal Videos from Your Computer

Connect your Kindle Fire to your computer using a USB cable to transfer photos and personal videos to your device, or upload photos and personal videos to your Amazon Drive account with our Amazon Drive applications for PC, Mac, Android, and iPhone/iPod touch. Help for Kindle Fire (2nd Generation), Kindle Fire HD 7" (2nd Generation), and Kindle Fire HD 8.9" (2nd Generation).

  1. Connect your Kindle Fire to your computer with a USB cable.
    • Windows: Your Kindle Fire will appear in the Computer or My Computer folder. If you're using a Windows XP computer, you will need to install Windows Media Player 11 to complete the USB transfer. To download Windows Media Player 11, go to Windows Media Player 11.
    • Mac: Your Kindle Fire will appear on the desktop. You will need to install Android File Transfer to complete the USB transfer. To download Android File Transfer, go to http://www.android.com/filetransfer.

    Note: If you've set a lock screen password on your Kindle Fire, you may need to unlock your device before it can be opened on your computer.

  2. Open the Kindle Fire folder (titled "Kindle") on your computer, and then open the Internal storage folder.
  3. Drag and drop your photos into the Photos folder or personal videos into the Movies folder.
  4. Disconnect your Kindle Fire from your computer.
  5. From your Kindle Fire, tap Photos, and then tap the Device tab to view your photo or personal video. Personal videos can also be accessed from the Personal Videos app in the Apps library.

You can also upload your photos and personal videos from your computer to your Amazon Drive account using the Amazon Drive application for PC and Mac. For mobile devices, you can upload your photos and personal videos using the Amazon Drive Photos for Android app, or upload your photos using the Amazon Drive Photos for iPhone and iPod touch app. Photos or personal videos (under 20 minutes long) uploaded to any of these applications will appear in your Amazon Drive and subsequently appear on your Kindle Fire when it's connected to a wireless network.
