Dropbox to Kindle Fire?

I am running Windows &, and cannot get the links in the Calibre2Opds catalog to work. Oh well. I have now tried installing the dropbox app on various devices and the links don't work within dropbox, either.

Here is the strangest. I can access dropbox from my Tab, and email a mobi file to my Fire. Great. But if I do the same thing on my Fire, and hit download, it downloads, but then says it cannot open the file. I have tried emailing it, but it looks like it is downloading, and then says File Expert has stopped working. Do people have something special to read mobi files installed on their kindles to handle this? And forget K4-the browser is so bad, I couldn't even get into drop box.

So, how do people download books from dropbox onto their kindle fire, all on the kindle fire?

Promise, no more threads about my issues with Calibre2Opds. Debra

You might get an answer to this if you ask it in the Kindle Fire subforum.

I'm not a Kindle user but I do have an Android smartphone. I use the DropSync app to automatically sync selected dirs between my Dropbox account and phone storage. The free version allows a single dir pairing, the paid-for version lets you have as many as you want.

I should add that I got it via the Google Play store not Amazon.
