It even assigns a drive number to it, but the drive is not mounted or accessible any way I can see. It's definitely there in Devices and Printers, though, as Amazon Kindle.

I checked the device managed for USB/HID, but it doesn't show up in the list of Human Interface Devices.

I saw a thread about hooking up to the serial usb interface, but everything just went way over my head, and I can't seem to find any info on how to open up the kindle.
I have seen the kindle USB drive show up as a 0-byte device (viewable in the windows Disk Manager) sometimes. Look in Device Manager. What size is the Kindle drive?
