Use Windows Explorer and copy the files into the "Documents" folder on the Kindle.

Perhaps they are not in a format that the Kindle recognises? If that's the case, they won't show up in the Kindle's library, even though the files are on the device.

Transfer the books via calibre. They'll be automatically converted to a suitable format.
