Post How to put books (using Calibre) on the Kindle Fire?

How can I put books on the kindle fire? I have all my books ready to go in .mobi format and with metadata downloaded and it sums up to 120 books. How can I put these on my kindle fire so:

1) It shows up in the books section
2) It has it's metadata (cover, etc.)

Thanks in advance!!!

The metadata should already be there in the file. Just make sure the file doesn't have the PDOC tag, and copy the files over. You don't even need to use Calibre for that part. Just plug the Fire in, and copy items to the same folder your other books are in.

It's easiest if you have the USB for the fire. I have another kindle so I had the USB ready to go. One thing that was giving me trouble, I hadn't updated Calibre in a while, and the newer version has the drivers for the KF. Once I updated and plugged in my kindle, it shows up on the calibre toolbar and I could just select to send to device. Before I updated the software, I was unable to get the books loaded no matter what method I tried. Some would load, others would not. Good luck.
