Transfer Documents to Your Fire or Kindle via USB

You can transfer documents from your computer to your compatible Fire tablet or Kindle e-reader.

To transfer a document to your device:

  1. Connect your device to your computer with a USB cable. Your device will appear in the same location on your computer that external USB drives appear.
    • Windows: Your device will appear in the Computer or My Computer folder.
    • Mac: Your device will appear on the desktop.
  2. Open the device folder, and then open the Documents or Internal Documents folder.

    Note: Depending on your device type, the folder names may vary.

  3. Locate the document file on your computer, and then drag and drop the file into the appropriate device folder.
  4. After the file transfer completes, safely disconnect your device from your computer.

Your personal document will appear on the Home screen of your Kindle e-reader. For Fire tablets, tap Docs from the home screen to view your documents.
