Ok. Now...are these audio books or just regular "text" books? How many are we talking about?

Let me know.

Audio books from amazon

Ok. Hold on please.

Expert:  Steve G. replied 3 months ago.

First, let's make sure future audio books go to the SD card. Follow THESE instructions.

Hold on for further instructions.

Ok, there is no easy way to move the files unless you have a good file manager on your Fire. You can download "File Explorer" and do it that way.


Simply delete the audio books and then download them again. They will go to the card.
