Just thought I'd post this for others like me who might be coming to see about this:

Calibre does not, at the moment, detect the Fire.

Edit:

D'oh. Probably should have put this in Devices subforum.

If you have a Fire in your hot little hands you can help others get the device added to calibre

I'll do that as soon as I figure out where side-loaded books go. I dropped one into the 'books' folder, but I can't get it to show up in the reader. (One of the questions in your link is 'Tell us where books need to go'

The ebooks go in the Documents folder
Code:
D:\Documents
It does not seem like subfolders work, and the new ebooks took a minute or so to show up.

Actually, I've been putting them in the books folder, and half of them show up in the reader, while those that don't show up under the docs tab, despite being in the books folder. See this thread for more discussion:

I agree, Books or Documents
Code:
D:\Books

D:\Documents
So far, all my Calibre MOBIs (even those from ePubs) show up as Books, no matter which of the two folders they are in. A PDF shows up under Docs though.

In that thread that I linked, I explain my experiences with .mobis. Half seem to go to books, half to docs, despite all being in books folder. I'm beginning to suspect that all is not well with Amazon's overlay implementation.

Ok, Blossom from the Fire forums figured it out:

the 'PDOC' tag under mobi output causes it to be, obviously, a document, and not a book. Re-converting a mobi with that field blank ensures that it shows up under books, and syncs properly.

Thanks blossom!

I'd like confirmation on whether sub folders work or not, as I would be fairly surprised if they did not. Also could someone create a news download in calibre (with output profile set to Kindle) and copy the resulting mobi to the fire and see what happens.

Sub folders work, Kovid. I had [PDOC] set as a conversion option under mobi output. This caused the Fire to read it as a Document, rather than book. Reconversion with this removed causes proper behavior. I'll be back in a second with the news result.

One more question: Is the documents folder "Documents" or "documents"

It's "Documents", but that's not where you want books to go, you want them in "Books", so they'll go into the reader (This is significant because you're then pressing the 'books' tab to find side-loaded books, rather than the 'Documents' tab.)

The folder is "Documents".

P.S. I'm willing to test when you get this ready. Thanks!

Does putting them in Documents cause them to not show up as Books, I thought that was determined by the presence or absence of the PDOC field.
