I have the basic Kindle and Calibre worked fine. I now have a Kindle Fire. The icon to send a book to the Kindle no longer appears.

What OS are you running?
What calibre version are you running?
Finally your question seems ambiguous to me are you having a problem with your Kindle or your Kindle Fire?

I'm guessing he is running either Windows XP or a Mac, with the Fire being an MTP device and all...

Surely you mean WinXP or linux -- it is Mac that doesn't support MTP.

Also, why only XP? What about Vista 7 and 8?

No, he means that XP and the Mac don't support MTP, and therefore a Fire will not mount on these systems.

The Fire 1st Gen is not MTP and so works fine on XP... for all later versions you are correct.
