Unhappy Anyone using Fire HD + Calibre + Win7?

I've had my Fire HD 8.9 since Nov and have never been successful in transferring my Calibre books via USB. I'm running Win7 x64 and the latest version of Calibre (0.9.28). The Fire is recognized as a media device -- never as a drive.

Honestly, I've read the dozens and dozens of posts here on MR as well as those found via Google the past several months. It seems the solutions are targeted at XP users, not Win7. Is anyone with a Fire HD successfully transferring books via USB with Win7?

Please tell me what the secret is. I am pulling my hair out.

Have you tried loading the Kindle Fire drivers? You may want to check over at XDA.

I looked over there but I was under the impression I needed to be rooted. I'm not.

Thank you, Daffy4u -- do you by chance have a link? The only posts I have found are a year old -- for the Fire, not HD.

Thank you, Daffy4u. I'm going to have to educate myself on the ADB stuff - I am clueless and don't want to brick my device.

Before you do anything, go to YouTube and search for "Kindle Fire HD drivers" and you'll see some videos that you should be helpful.

I always scour YouTube when I try things I'm not familiar with (even installing my Garbage disposal). ;-)

Yes, I understand it works quite well -- as does a simple wireless transfer. But, as I mentioned in my post, I am trying to get the device to connect as a drive via USB.

I don't believe the ADB drivers will have anything to do with being able to see the device as a "drive." Make sure you concentrate on solutions for problems with MTP drivers and connecting MTP devices.

Why haven't you been successful? I would expect your Fire HD 8.9 to be seen as a media device just like my Nexus 7, but I have no trouble transferring my books via MTP.

What happens when you connect your Fire HD 8.9 to calibre? If it isn't being detected follow the info in the Sticky post above titled: My device is not detected by calibre.

They are targeted at XP because calibre does not support MTP transfers in Windows XP. Windows 7(64) though is supported and works.

I think it is safe to say they are transferring books via MTP to their tablets just fine.

I also had that problem. But I found (for me anyway) that the Fire had to be turned off before plugging into the computer. I s your Fire off when plugging in?
