I ran into the same problem trying to download files from dropbox onto the kindle via Whispernet- the letters appended on the end mask the file from the browser/reader - which refuses to download it.

Strange. I just tried it and had no difficulty downloading and reading an epub from my dropbox with readMe. Perhaps it has been fixed since you last tried?

Was this a private folder with a password or a shared public folder? Files made public may lack the appended letters [a post in another thread said that the appended letters were a security feature linked with a private account to prevent anonymous downloads].

It does not appear to be working from my public folder either. Nikkie, are you using the webserver in readme to connect to dropbox? Or is there a way to link readme to the dropboxapp?

I am adding it as a website and then accessing as usual. The w=... stuff are there, and don't appear to affect the file name or opening the file at all.

I have it in a private folder, and just sign in with my credentials. I'm accessing it by clicking the "events" tab, the file tab does not seem to load for me.

Heh wow that works. Thanks. Kind of strange, but its an easy enough workaround. I might have to move something in dropbox or copy something to get it to show up in events, ut that is easy enough
