What exactly did you download onto your android phone and form where - if Calibre Companion from Google's Play Store you're in the wrong place. You need to be here ==>> Calibre Companion

Calibre itself is a desktop package that runs on Windows, MacOS, or Linux. Calibre Companion is an Android/IOS adjunct to that software - i.e. it needs access to a 'calibre library' on a desktop.

@Thepretti1 - I moved your posts into a new thread.

If you google for "How to get kindle books into calibre?" you'll find a wealth of information.

AFAIK most people do it from their desktop/laptops where they have calibre installed, in essence they use the Kindle to PC/Mac software from Amazon to get the books onto their computer and then they add them to their calibre libraries. But in practice I think its more complicated than that.

I don't buy anything from Amazon.

That's Calibre Companion, not Calibre itself. You need to install Calibre on your desktop/laptop (there's no Calibre for Android) and add your Kindle books there. Then you sync Calibre Companion on your phone with Calibre, to get the books to your phone.

I have Kindle4PC (the older 1.26 that I DON'T UPDATE) installed on Windows PC.

I copy the book format file from My Kindle Content folder into my Intake Library and let Alf's tools do their thing. (We may be pushing MR rules here with this much discussion. Go visit Alf's place for more)
