I don't know if your experience is widely shared or not, but I've never had a problem with connecting any of my Kindles, including my new Paperwhite, to my PC. It's always been a simple matter of plug and play. Since it arrived, I've downloaded two books from Amazon and side-loaded one from our MobileRead library with no difficulties.
