Kindle Fire private docs memory
I plugged my Fire into my computer and the device mounted as a 5GB drive (with almost nothing on it). None of my Amazon content was visible, so it seems Amazon has walled-off the memory used for Amazon content. Interesting, since my K3 shows everything when I mount it as a drive.

The Fire will have downloaded Kindle Store ebooks in Books, which you can see via USB. Most likely all your content is currently in the "Cloud". It can be downloaded on the device by selecting it, or from your "manage my Kindle" page at amazon.com.

The Fire has 1GB of Internal Memory. This is where apps are installed. The 5GB External memory is where content is placed.
You won't see the Internal memory when you mount the Fire as a drive on your PC.
The 5GB emulates a SD Card. This does bring a limitation on how many apps one can have on the Fire just like any Android Device. On my phone I have 256MB and 2GB mSD card. So I tried to keep the Internal memory at 45MB.
I doubt you will ever fill the Internal memory up with apps 1GB is plenty! 5GB for content is not too bad either.
