Help deleting book from Kindle 3

So, I went online (Amazon) to manage my Kindle and deleted some books, but they are still in the local Kindle archives. Any suggestions or comments?

Yes, I tried to re-sync already, reboot 2 times and the book(s) are still showing on my Archive collection, even when they are gone on my Amazon's account.

I do have a Kindle 3 wifi.



Thanks in advance,

Deleting books places them in Archive

When you delete a book, it automatically leaves it's footprint in the Archive. You can always get it back from there.

It does not exist on the device.

That is indeed the case when you delete a book on the Kindle. But the OP has deleted the ebook from Amazon's 'Manage your Kindle' page. It's gone. What reason would there be to keep it in the device's archive? It should be well and truly 'deleted', should it not?

Thanks in advance,
Have you tried underlining, then left clicking on each one? Left clicking brings up a 'delete' option.

What happens if you actually try to download from the Archive to your Kindle?

That might tell you whether or not the book has truly been deleted from your online library or whether you just aren't getting a current list of Archived books synced to your device.

Good point! I did exactly the same in order to validate that. The book was restored into my collection and disappear from "archiving". The wifi was off so to me, it is still inside the Kindle.

I think I am going to call customer support ...

That is true. But you can also delete from Amazon webpage and when you do that, it will delete everything for good, including any entry on "archiving" section; you won't be able to restore your book if you do that and you will have to pay again if you want to read it one more time. That is not happening here which means, for some reason my Kindle is not getting or downloading that Amazon's update.
