I am trying to help a friend with a Kindle. How do I loan her books on my pc which are in mobi format. Can I transfer them via a usb cable and where are they filed on the Kindle. I also have a lot of books in various formats which I think can be changed to Mobi via Calibre (which I have installed on my computer with a very large library of books that I transfer to and from my iPad). Any answers to the above would be appreciated. Thanks. Berni

There's a Documents folder on the Kindle. Just put them there via USB cable transfer. Or use Calibre - it'll detect the Kindle (attached to PC with USB) and you can send books to it from there. Remember the .mobi files must be without DRM.

I find it easier to transfer books directly rather than transfer them through Calibre.
Here's a more thorough explanation on how to transfer files to the Kindle:
