If you have already purchased the book, magazine or newspaper you wish to transfer to your Kindle Fire via USB, visit Manage Your Kindle and locate the item you want to download from the "All Items" section. Filter your view for or search your library to quickly find an item.
Content purchased from the Kindle Store can be downloaded to your Kindle, or Kindle compatible device, as long as you've registered the device to the Amazon account that purchased the Kindle content. There is no limit on the number of times eligible Kindle content title can be downloaded to a registered Kindle device, but there may be limits on the number of devices (usually 6) that can simultaneously use a single book. Note that Kindle active content is not currently available for Kindle Fire.
- Click on the "Actions" button beside the title and select "Download & transfer via USB."
- Select the device you will transfer the file to and click the "Download" button.
If you haven't yet purchased the item, you can choose "Transfer via Computer" when purchasing it from the Kindle Store, then click "Buy now with 1-Click."
If you have more than one Kindle device registered to the account, you will see a pop-up window asking you to choose a device. If you do not select the correct Kindle device, you will be unable to open the content on that device.
- Once you've successfully saved the file onto your computer, proceed to Transferring content via USB for further instructions.
