Kindle 4 Folder Tree

Hi Everyone,
When I connect my Kindle 4 to the PC and I make clic on the drive "kindle" in Windows Explorer, I can see only 02 folders. Though I can read, and the device is apparently normal, I think that there were some more folders in this tree sometime ago. I suspect that my system is corrupted. Can someone help me, listing the original folder diagram for me to compare? I thank you very much for helping me out.2

Here is a listing of all the files/directories in the root directory for a brand new Kindle 4:

The "documents" and "system" directories are probably the 2 folders you are seeing.

You have the option of adding the directories "audible" and "music"

audible - directory for storing audio books
music - directory for storing MP3 files

Folder Tree

Hi Kandlebox, Thanks for yournhelp. Indeed I cas all the folderds you've mentioned. I have no audio option on my device. I had an idea that there was an option for screensavers, but I really don't care for that. I'm happy to know that my foldre's tree is like yours and there's nothing wrong with my Kindle. I was affraid because living in Brazil, I have no warranty for the ereader. I thank you very much for your help.

Perhaps I'm missing something obvious, but could you explain why it is that you'd want to add music or audiobooks to a K4, which has no audio capabilities? I find this a little puzzling.

Folders Tree

Hi, what I am seeing right now is:

1-active-content data (empty)
2-documents (all my boioks there)

No system Folder and the property says: Total capacity 1.35gb - used 87mb, free 1.27gb

Do you agree with these numbers and with the missing system folder?
Tkx.

I have been using a Kindle Keyboard which does support audio which is why I mentioned the audible and music directories. I didn't even notice that the new Kindle 4 I got for my wife doesn't support audio.

The system folder on the new Kindle 4 contains the following two directories:

"Search Indexes"
"com.amazon.ebook.booklet.reader"

both directories appear to contain stored application data or preferences. Not sure either is required for your Kindle to function properly.

The active-content directory is probably used to store Kindle apps and/or associated data.

My Mac is showing the Kindle 4 has a 1.46GB drive, 1.4GB available, with 55.1MB in use.

If your Kindle is functioning properly then it doesn't seem like you should be too worried about the missing system folder.

Possibly your folder options (in Windows) are set to hide system files/folders?
