If your user stats are current, you have a paperwhite (but what year/release. they are slighly different. Amazon help has an Identify my model guide if you need it)

Windows Explorer: is the way you normally find files on your PC.
If your Kindle is detected: it will appear on the list (This PC)

can't find kindle

I bought my kindle in 2017. It is firmware version 5.12.4

I tried finding the kindle on the PC and it is not listed under devices. Amazon told me it was recognized because when I plugged the kindle into my computer, the light lit up on the kindle. This notion was also confirmed by another technician.

I am thinking of buying a new kindle. Are people having problems connecting to calibre with the newest kindles paperwhites?

The Light says it sees USB Power (it lights when you plug it into a charger ONLY They really need better helpers )

What does Windows Device Manager (USB section) show or does it show where you EJECT USB devices inn the tool tray?

What theducks said. That LED will come on if you plug into a charger never mind a computer.

Have you tried a different USB port or USB cable?

Basically, if Windows is not mounting your Kindle as a drive, there's no chance that calibre will see it.

Also, try a different computer if it's still not working when you try different cables and different USB ports.

And one thing, you are running a 64-bit Windows. So you should be using a 64-bit version of Calibre.

kindle not recognized

Thank you all for your suggestions. I have already tried most of them to no avail. I have been on the phone with Amazon and Cox tech support also.

My problem is that I have used this software for years with no problem. I just bought a new kindle. I will see if that makes a difference.

thanks again to all of you, Andrea
