Yes, but we don't discuss it here because the procedure is equally useful to the pirate and the legitimate user. I will give you a hint, and let you figure it out on your own. Look here.

I found another Mobipocket retailer that Kindle owners can use. The list now includes:

Ebookmall
Fictionwise
ebooks.com
BooksOnBoard
I cannot recommend the last one.

I installed Mobipocket Desktop 6.0 on my Vista machine. It recognizes when I plug in my smartphone - but when I plug in my Kindle it dosnt recognize it. Has anybody seen this?

In the about it says it Version : 6.0 Build 580.

Do you think in the new Kindles they did something to make it not recognize?!

I'll find out tomorrow when my replacement Kindle arrives. I'm running XP but I would imagine the outcome should be similar.

If they really block MobiPocket Desktop from now on, shouldn't every Kindle be affected ? They can automatically push firmware updates using EVDO.

You'd think so but at least on my dead screen Kindle MobiPocket Desktop 6.0 still recognizes my Kindle and displays its PID.

It makes sense to "upgrade" the MobiPocket Desktop to exclude the Kindle instead of pushing out a firmware release via EVDO. When you open MobiPocket Desktop it will tell you if there is new version available and ask if you want to install it. Most people will upgrade automatically, I know that I did. But I was able to uninstall 6.1 and reinstall 6.0.

Amazon was probably getting complaints from Kindle owners that they weren't able to add their Kindle PID at MobiPocket to read DRMed ebooks. I know that I was told that MobiPocket Desktop does not support the Kindle from both MobiPocket and Amazon. Shortly after that 6.1 arrived with the Kindle only showing up as an USB drive.

I'm hoping that the PID is still based on the serial number so igorsk's fix will work if 6.0 doesn't recognize my new Kindle.

I'll find out probably tomorrow afternoon, US East Coast time.

The PID would have to be based off of the serial number. Any other scheme would open the door to people finding a way to change the PID of their device. We all know where that would lead. I seem to recall that mobipocket bases its PID off hardware serial. As for the rest, I installed Mobi 6.0 on Vista the other day. It did not recognize my Kindle. I was disappointed.

Must be something with Vista. I just received my replacement Kindle and 6.0 found it and gave me the PID. BTW, I'm using XP SP2.

I forgot that I had MobiPocket on my Vista tablet computer and it didn't find my Kindle either.

If you want the PID just use igorsk's script. It works.

Oooo -- what and where is that? I don't have any mobipocket desktop installed (I'm on a mac) but I'd love to know my Kindle's ID. I can find a PC if I need to (okay, it's also on my desk, but I only use it once a quarter or less), to run said script. But I really don't want to bother installing the desktop thing.

There are threads on this Forum, but the direct link to the script is Mobipocket Books on Kindle. Be sure to read the comments for pastebin bonus scripts.

Look here link removed on Amazon's request. You'll also need a python interpreter, which you can find here.

Same thing. Vista itself sees the Kindle just fine but Mobipocket doesn't, dang. Worked fine under XP.
