harry's asking because the Kindle recognizes .MOBI .PRC .DOC and .TXT files as far as i remember (and obviously the .AZW).
it also reads PDF.

i hope i haven't left one out.

The Kindle will not read ePub books. PDFs should certainly be recognised, although how well they'll display is problematic.

sunnysmiles, here is Amazon's Kindle3 support page.

Maybe it will help you. You can also download the user guide in pdf for to read on your computer.

If you continue to have problems, and your books are NOT epub, call Kindle CS.....they will walk you thru.

You can use Calibre to convert the epub books to mobi, and make sure when you drag books to your Kindle that you put them in the "Documents" folder.

You can also set calibre to email the books to your @free.kindle.com email address - that way you can download via WiFi without hooking up cables.

I thought that I did set Calibre to e-mail my books to my Kindle via the free gmail account (which my Kindle/Amazon accout is set to accept), but I cannot figure out how to download via WiFi. Can you help?

Welcome to MobileRead, crahol

If your account is set up properly, when you hit the "send to xxx@xxx the book will automatically send to your kindle, but the wifi must be on......

If you have further problems, you need to post them in the "Calibre" forum.

thanks for the tip, desertgrandma. I fired up calibre (which is very slowwww on my pc) and emailed a whole bunch of books to my kindle. Its still faster just to upload files from my pc to gmail and then email them. But the files I did today had been converted from epub via calibre, so I found it convenient and easy!
