Question 1 - you can only send mobi to your kindle using email or send to Kindle. If you side load via USB you can use mobi or AZW3. PRC is not accepted, you need to convert those to mobi or AZW3.

Question 2 - no you cannot have sub folders, just collections. There is no Document folder or any such thing, the Voyage is an ereader, not a tablet or pc.

Question 3 - not sure how you'd convert a pattern but again they need to be in the same formats as mentioned in question 1. Assuming you can do that just call a Collection Kniting Patterns and put them in that collection. You can have as many collections as you want.

I know what you're trying to say here, Josie: that the Kindle won't display folders on the home page. But you can of course store your books in folders within the "documents" folder on the Kindle. On mine, for example, I use a folder arrangement:

documents \ author name \ book name

This makes it a lot easier to see what files are associated with what book.

How do you do that Harry? You've got me confused.

You can create whatever folder structure you want to under the "documents" folder in the root of the Kindle's drive. The Kindle doesn't care: it just displays all the books in a flat list on the home page. But you can store the books in any folder structure that suits you.

Are you sure about that, Josie? I have got several PRCs on my Kindle, and I don't have any trouble opening them.

(This is on a Kindle 3. Maybe later models are different?)

Tbh I've only ever tried emailing them and they've always been rejected.

I've always just created collections, tbh I have no need for any sub levels so collections work for me.

If I remember correctly--prc was an extension that was in use way back when Palm Pilots were popular. PRCs were data files and most (but not all) were actually in mobi format. So, if the prc is in mobi format, you should be able to open it on your Kindles, but if it is actually a different format it would need to be converted to either mobi or azw format first.

The Mobi format is indeed a PRC container file, and all Kindles will read it just fine. The old "Mobipocket Creator" tool generated PRC files.

I recently tried to download a prc file to my Voyage from the MobileRead kindle book list (which is on my kindle). It was rejected by my Voyage, which said that it won't download prc files. I don't remember this happening on my K3. I was puzzled.

Load it via USB. That will work fine.

Thanks, Harry. I will try that. It still puzzles me though. They are getting really picky.
