Hi there and welcome

This is for your Kindle correct?

when I opened the new account the content off my kindle disapeard
Expert:  Richard replied 9 months ago.

Thats correct, as it is all linked to your Amazon account, not the actual Kindle itself.

You cannot transfer books between accounts, but what is stopping you from signing into your original correct account?

I have signed into old account but content has not returned
