Thanks to slayda, I figured out how to use Mobipocket Creator and Reader to convert Word docs into .prc files, which the Reader will read, and which then showed up on the SD card when I pulled them to it. The Kindle recognizes that there's an SD card in the slot, but it appears to be empty -- nothing registers in the "content manager" for the SD card. Is it possible I missed some crucial step in the process? I keep thinking there must be something simple that I've missed... I appreciate any suggestions!
Your Kindle should have made a directory structure on your SD card and created a series of folders for you. One of those should be called "documents."

Make sure that your .prc file is in the folder called "documents" that's on the SD card, otherwise your Kindle won't "see" it because it's not in the right place.

Also, to test it out, you can try putting your .prc file in the "documents" folder that's located in your Kindle as well. That way you can find out if it's a problem with the SD card or the .prc file.
