Having trouble sending files to Kindle?
It’s not just you…
The issue is that sending files over the cloud requires some configuration, and several users have been told that they are having trouble doing so. Simply follow the procedures below to accomplish this.
- Go to Manage Your Content and Devices to get started.
- In the dropdown menu, choose the Kindle device.
- All of your Kindle devices should now be visible in your account.
- By going to Settings>Device Options>Device Info and comparing the last four numbers, you may compare the serial number to the one on the device.
If your account does not contain any Kindle devices, you must first register your Kindle via the e-reader.
In this scenario, you must deregister the device and then re-register the device using your account. Go to Your Account > Deregister Device on your Kindle to do this. Simply re-register using your Amazon login once you’ve finished.
