Syncing procedure

I just realized that, to sync between the Kindle LG WiFi 3 and the Kindle for PC Applicatiion, two steps are required:

1. On the Kindle 3 go to Home \ Menu \ Sync & Check for Items

2. On the Kindle for PC go to Home \ Tools \ Sync and Check for New Items


If BOTH of those procedures are not done at least once per day, the items will NOT sync properly. Those items include Highlights, Notes and Bookmarks.

It appears automatic syncing without those steps does not work yet.

Just to emphasize - you MUST close your book and return to the Home page first - so that the Kindle will note your last location read in that book. THEN select the Sync option.

When to sync

I find that syncing the Kindle 3 before and after its use insures proper alignment with the Amazon server.

I also sync my Kindle for PC Application the same way.

Absolutely correct. A Kindle only updates the Amazon server occasionally unless you force it to update. And if you have 3G only, it might not update when you ask it to if you live where I do and have terrible 3G service from AT&T! But with WiFi the updates are fast.

BTW, sirmaru, I think we both have the Kindle DX Graphite. I'm eagerly awaiting the supposed firmware update from Amazon to give it the PDF support of the K3. If you notice an update please let me know and I will do the same for you.

If you do have problems with syncing, it is very easy to note the location number down from one device and simply enter it into another (go to location) to start reading from the exact same spot. Sometimes I think it's actually quicker to do it that way!

Actually with my K2 and K4PC, I rarely have to force the issue. If the wireless is on on the K2, it syncs pretty quickly after I close the book (or when it first goes to sleep). Same with K4PC. I may catch it unsynced if I'm quick enough, but I've found that it's pretty reliable (without manually syncing) when used in real-life "reading the same book on different devices" situations.

It doesn't work the same way with the K3?

Syncing is near immediate if done manually.

I have the Latest Generation Kindle WiFi 3 and if I make a change on the Kindle for PC and then sync, after I sync on the Kindle immediatly after, the change takes place.

It happens almost immedieatly if done manually.

That is F A S T !!

However, if not done manually, it must take hours since I never saw it happen that way.
