RichieMe :

Hi there, and welcome to JustAnswer, I look forward to assisting you today with your question and providing the best answer possible.

RichieMe :

If you get a playback error, it means you have transferred the songs correctly, but they are in the wrong format or have DRM protection

RichieMe :

The Kindle can only play MP3 files, it is not capable of playing any other file format

RichieMe :

You will most likely have WMA files if coming from windows media player

RichieMe :

These will need to be converted and you can do so by using this Free online tool

Once converted to MP3, transfer these files to the Kindle and they should then play

There must be a miscommunication somewhere. When I am in the website, I hit the browse button, go to the music file on my computer, I click the album I select the open icon at the bottom, it opens the file, I hit open again, it opens the song, I hit open again it selects a song. I cannot get the file to go into the browser on the computer. What am I doing wrong? I don't find anything on my computer that says convert
