Paperwhite-non amazon download files not available in family library

Hello ,

I have copied non amazon downloaded files in az3 format to kindle paperwhite, I can see it in my library All / Downloaded,

however I am trying to setup kids profile by going to

settings -> household &family library and selecting a child dropdown and library, I cannot see the copied files , all I can see are downloaded from Amazon, need help in sorting this so I can assign books to profiles.

I also tried mobi format it is the same.

Thankyou.

That is how Amazon designed it. A child profile cannot see anything not from Amazon.
Same rules for books. Videos on fire tablets..
it's not unreasonable for Amazon's line to be: if you want us to maintain a safe environment for a child then all content must come from and be age rated by us.

the workaround - is: don't use the for kids/ child profile stuff. give them an " adult" profile but combine that with your choice of password protected parental controls
e.g. you can lock out the kindle store, social media access etc. that way and still have a functioning " for books" device that you can sideload.
on a PW d you don't have video to worry about , but if you did - e.g. on a fire tablet or tv- there are separate age related controls over when a PIN is needed to view. Which can also be done outside of actual child profile

I will try this out and let you know how it goes.
