Welcome ,I will give a full and clear answer to your question, please make sure to reply to any questions I have. They may be essential to my reply.


 

iteachmac :

Please try :


 

iteachmac :

Connect via Micro USB. Unlock the Kindle Fire slide arrow across the screen. You should then see a picture of a USB cord "you may now transfer files to your Kindle" etc. Then on the Mac using the Finder, click Finder from the dock to open a Finder window , in the left hand list the Kindle should show up as an "SDcard" name and you can drag files to it like you would a USB memory stick or click to open the SDcard folder to view.

Hi Paul,


when i connect the USB cable, I do not get any message on the Kindle screen, nor do i see the kindle in the Finder Window. I installed an android file transfer, but when i transfer a file to this, i cannot locate it on my kindle anywhere?


 


thank you

Customer:

Apologies, meant to add that when i do connect the USB cable, i get the message "some computers require a free file-transfer utility to copy files between the computer and your kindle. if you need this utlity, please open your computers browser etc.....hence why i installed the android file transfer.
