What OS are you using? If you are using Win XP, it does not recognise MTP, and therefore will not recognise the Fire HD.

oops, looks like you have Win 7...sorry, can't help. Have you tried the Device subforum in the Calibre Forum?

Kindle Fire not recognizing Calibre

I just bought my Kindle Fire yesterday. I have a MacBook Air using Mac OS X version 10.5.8. I have connected the Fire to my Mac via the USB cord that came with the Fire and have opened Calibre but Calibre doesn't recognize that a device is connected. Any advice? I had no problems with my old Kindle Keyboard version.

calibre won't recognize a fire hd on Mac (or XP). That's not a bug, that's just the way it is.

A simple and easy alternative is to install ES File Explorer (free) on your Fire HD. It has a built-in feature of wireless file transfer to/from your laptop/computer via your LAN. It is easy to use and is an excellent file manger as well. I use this app regularly for moving files/books between a Fire HD, and other Android tablets, and my computers.

I did post in the device forum. Goyal said to reboot both - which worked once - now it isn't working again. Tried rebooting together again last night and nothing. Such a pain because ALL of my books are in epub

Are you sure this is just a Calibre issue? Does your computer recognize your Fire...can you see/open your fire through MY Computer when it is attached via usb?

* Nevermind, I see in your post in Calibre Devices forum that you are certain your fire is recognized by your win 7 computer....so again, I'm no help. Sorry!
