Make sure your personal books are MOBI format. Amazon Kindle only supports MOBI (DRM-free) and PDF formats. It does not support EPUB books. I personally prefer MOBI to PDF because the MOBI format is better for reading.
If you want to transfer other format books to Kindle for reading, you will have to convert them to Kindle supported MOBI or PDF.
Once the books are in MOBI or PDF, we can easily transfer them from PC/Mac to Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle Fire (HD).
Steps To transfer books to Kindle
- Connect your device to computer via USB.
- Double click the drive to open it and view the folders.
- Select the item you want to transfer (mobi or pdf).
- Copy books to the folder (documents) under Kindle drive.
You should be able to see books in your kindle device. If not, then cross check that your book is in kindle supported format.
