Early technical info on the Kindle

The Kindle shows up by name in my Mobipocket Desktop. (I don't know which version it is; it's at least 6 months old.) It shows up both as a reading device (with a PID) and as two drives (SD card and internal memory). I bought a DRMed PRC from Fictionwise. The Kindle recognized the file, and refused to read it. I tried with PRC and AZW suffix. Neither worked.

The Baen PRC work with and without being renamed to AZW.

The nonDRM PRC I have from Fictionwise also worked with the exception of the table of contents. I think this is because of how they generated the file.

My DOC came through just fine with pictures.



P.S. By the way, I claim first post on the Kindle!

I have not downloaded anything directly. I can't get a good signal.
