Transferring content via micro USB
- Once you've connected your Kindle to a computer with a USB cable (sold separately), your Kindle will appear in the same location as external USB drives usually appear. For Windows users, this is typically in the "Computer" or "My Computer" menu. For Mac users, the drive will appear on the desktop.
- Open the Kindle drive; you will see several folders inside.
- Locate the downloaded file and drag and drop it into the applicable content folder, such as Video, Music, or Pictures.
- Safely eject your Kindle Fire from your computer and unplug the USB cable.
Your content will appear within the corresponding content library on your device:
- Books will appear in the Books library.
- Personal documents will appear in the Docs library.
- Music will appear in the Music library.
- Pictures will appear in the Gallery app.
- Videos will appear in the Gallery app. Note that videos transferred via USB will only be available in the Gallery app. Only videos from the Amazon Video store are shown in the Video library.
Remember: Your Kindle Fire will only recognize transferred files if:
- File types are listed under Files Kindle Fire Recognizes below.
- Files are transferred to the correct folder for their type.
- Files are free of digital rights management software.
