Early technical info on the Kindle
The Kindle shows up by name in my Mobipocket Desktop. (I don't know which version it is; it's at least 6 months old.) It shows up both as a reading device (with a PID) and as two drives (SD card and internal memory). I bought a DRMed PRC from Fictionwise. The Kindle recognized the file, and refused to read it. I tried with PRC and AZW suffix. Neither worked.
The Baen PRC work with and without being renamed to AZW.
The nonDRM PRC I have from Fictionwise also worked with the exception of the table of contents. I think this is because of how they generated the file.
My DOC came through just fine with pictures.
P.S. By the way, I claim first post on the Kindle!
I have not downloaded anything directly. I can't get a good signal.
