Issue with a sideloaded dictionary

Hello
I have recently seen that in the PW4 of a friend, several custom PRC dictionaries don't work.. They work perfectly on my PW3
On the PW4 checking a word while reading says something like: "The dictionary han not been bought on the store"... It's absurd
Does it mean I can't use my own sideloaded dictionaries on a recent device??

I tried them on a KT 8th generation and there's a similar problem: after 10 minutes they are not shown, they're like absent! (but still present on the "documents" folder of the kindle). With the KT 8th I solved turning off the wifi and coping them again inside. But with the PW4 the wifi is permanently turned off!

So I was wondering: what the heck is happening?!?!
Does really amazon forbid the users to handle their own books?

You can (now - I think it did not used to work) use Send To Kindle to get the dictionary on there (I have done this recently). It will show only in Documents, not grouped with Dictionaries that come from Amazon. But you’ll be able to choose it along with other available dictionaries in the Definition panel.

I don’t know about side-loaded dictionaries, have not done that for awhile.
