I have a 2015 Kindle Paperwhite (don't read on tablet or phone), where I have accumulated well over a thousand books.
Storage Management tells me I've used up 2.84 GB, free: 351 MB.
My homepage lists 47 books, under "ALL" & "DOWNLOADED ".
I did a hard reset, which made no difference.

How can I get my books back?
Can you see the books when connected via USB? If yes, what directory are the books stored in? They have to be inside documents.

Also, if you moved/copied a lot of books, give the Kindle some time to index them. They're not all gonna show up immediately.

A lot of books did not transfer to Kindle for Mac new computer

I bought a new Mac and while a lot of books showed up on the new one in Kindle for Mac, a lot did not.

It says to remove them from the device, but Managing Your Content says that will remove them from all devices and the account -- I have two Kindle Paperwhites. So I haven't pulled that trigger yet.

Advice?

"Remove them from the device" is not the same as "Managing Your Content".

If you have books that don't show up on the Mac, then you cannot "remove them from the device" because they aren't there yet. How about using "Managing Your Content" and, book by book, resending the books you want at present?

Are you saying that the books are not visible in the library view of K4Mac?

A pop-up dialog with a message like "The book could not be opened. Please remove the book from your device and redownload it." means that the book file on your system cannot be opened by the the current installation of Kindle for Mac/PC. That can be because of a DRM issue (you re-registered the app) or because the book format is unsupported (KFX format book when KFX has been disabled).

To fix do what it says. In Kindle for PC right click the book cover and choose "Remove from device" then right click it again and choose "Download". (There are equivalent functions on a Mac.)

I've been having the same issue with the Kindle app on my Likebook Mars. Sometimes, all my Kindle books on the device disappear, and I need to turn on Wifi to redownload them. This has never been a problem on my Kindle Touch or Kindle DX.
