thanks for the reply Poohbear.
I must be missing something.......I do those steps but the books are not showing up on the device itself.
Here's what I do:
Find the downloaded files [books] on the 'C' drive of my computer, right click on that and click on 'send to KINDLE' drive [hooked to USB port]
From there it shows up in the window of the KINDLE drive but it does not get to the device itself.
Like I said I must be missing something
