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 Cloud Drive account with our Cloud 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).

Note: The Photos library supports the following file types: .jpg, .png, .gif, .bmp., and .mp4.

  1. Connect your Kindle Fire to your computer with a USB cable.

    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 Cloud Drive account using the Cloud Drive application for PC and Mac. For mobile devices, you can upload your photos and personal videos using the Cloud Drive Photos for Android app, or upload your photos using the Cloud 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 Cloud Drive and subsequently appear on your Kindle Fire when it's connected to a wireless network.
