Question Book Updating Problem

I have a problem with regard to updating an Amazon book. One of the book files I have (original) has 4 novels in it. I see now it has been updated with 6 novels! Yet when, in "Managing ... and Devices", I click "Actions | Download & Transfer via USB", Amazon downloads the original file. When I click "Update Available", it warns me to have my Kindle connected and I can't see a way to download the file! Is there a trick to downloading the updated file which, in this case, would have all 6 novels in it?

Many thanks in advance.

This is a Kindle question, Not Calibre. Moving


Kindle for PC will get the scheduled update. I don't think you can do it with the ...USB mode

When you go to "Manage Your Devices and Content", if a book says "Update Available" you first need to click that and select "Update". Then select the "Deliver to Device" option and you'll get the updated version of the book.

I need to re-open this discussion.

If I click "Update Available", it just sends it to my device - I don't think I've ever been given a choice of destination. Can I use the KFX Input add-on in Calibre to add it to my database?

If I open Kindle for PC before clicking Update, none of the books show an update available. Why is that?

If it's any help, we have syncing turned OFF because we have 2 Kindles on 1 account.
