The OP's solution is below. Adding as a community wiki Answer and removing the solution edits from the Question. Found the Kindle using the sniffing technique described below. However I'd still like to know if there's a way to find it that's less overkill. I discovered that the Kindle updates its contents daily while in deep sleep around 5:30-6:30AM. So I ...

Amazon Support said (on 2019-05-24) that syncing personal documents is not supported. Here is my chat: ► Amazon: I'm sorry, currently there is no option to see the highlights made in the personal documents. ► Me: Ok, you are saying that Amazon deleted the website that allowed viewing highlights made in personal documents. Then I still have the other 2 ...

[Note: I know this thread is old, but I found it via a web search and have an answer for people in the future who find it that way as well.] There does not appear to be a built-in app, menu item, or button that allows you to view the download queue. On my Kindle Fire HDX, however, I can swipe down from the top, and any in-progress downloads are shown in the ...

This sounds like a limitation of the software, so you probably won't be able to get around it from the device. First, I recommend reporting this as a bug to Amazon. Don't expect them to fix it right away or anything, but it's always good to let the devs know when something doesn't behave as you as a user want. ;) If your final goal is to get all your books ...

If you plan to write, forget about making money. The return per hour, is dismal. If you want to write, write for it's own sake. If you want to earn money,do not write.

To be honest there are high probabilities that your screen died when you dropped the keyboard on the kindle's screen. My suggestion if you wanna keep it would be to remplace the entire screen by buying a brand new and following a tutorial like this one. Otherwise taking into account that the release date of the kindle DX was on July 1, 2010. You may ...

I don't necessarily endorse using it for all your reading, but there are some fine subreddits to suggest book titles. https://www.reddit.com/r/suggestmeabook/ . Also check out the booklists subreddit. Also, fivebooks.com is creating a whole universe of book suggestions by subject area (though more for academic topics). Finally, I agree with what you are ...

I'm guessing that the reason you are asking the question is that for some reason you don't have access to the account associated with the device. YOu could probably check with the Amazon people, but I'm pretty sure that the only way to redeem a gift card is via a web browser and only if you have the account holder's login/pass. Another option is to just ...

Most likely you downloaded a partial file or it was corrupted somehow. Just delete it from your device and try again. (Alternatively, remove it by going to Manage Your Content and Devices. Don't delete the ebook from all devices, just the one device you are working on. Failing that, you can also contact Oreilly or even the author and include a receipt. ...

One way is to use EpubPress to make an EPUB and then open it in Kindle Previewer and export it as a MOBI file. An issue I found is that opening each page of the SQL book individually results in too many tabs for EpubPress to process. It can process the single-page version you get from one of the printable version links on the book's main page, but then the ...

Methods for estimating page count for ebooks depend on a variety of things and don't really indicate anything. Different ebook distributors use different ISBNs. It used to be that print publishers would have a single ISBN. Nowadays, when you publish on a distributor's platform they will tend to assign an ISBN specific to the store. Google Play stores ...

Documents and Books are treated almost identically inside the Kindle app or Kindle device. There are filtering functions to divide the view so you see only one type or another type, but generally you can see both types together. One thing: in Manage Content & Devices, (on the Amazon website) you need to specify Documents or Books, so you can see files ...

There are some ease ways and some that might require programming skills. I'm describing the easy way: Install the Send to Kindle extension for Your browser (I'm using Chrome) Configure it to Your needs Visit the TED talk that has a transcription, e.g. this one, and click on the transcript link under the video, choose Your language. Now click on the "Send ...

You're right, there is no reason for it not being technically possible. In other words, you can do that if the firmware lets you do that. Which, AFAIK, the native Kindle firmware does not. That leaves you with either a hack or jailbreak as your options, if you're feeling adventurous: I found a relevant thread on Reddit that could point you in the right ...

The documented way is to use the Kindle PC app and download the book inside that. The file will end up on your PC and only readable in the Kindle. The current versions download the book as a .kfx file that allows Kindle apps to do more with the data. Older versions downloaded the file as a .azw file. The USB option does need Kindle hardware. The hardware ...

Not sure if you are still looking for a solution, but I was in the same situation. I had an Amazon US account and an Amazon IN account. Both of these has a few eBooks. I installed the Kindle for Android app on my phone with one account. And then installed the Parallel Space app via the playstore https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lbe.parallel....

One of the reasons this can happen is if the Calibre "convert to MOBI" preferences form has the Personal Dog tag set to [PDOC]. Then it will not show up in some versions of Kindle in the list of "Books", but it will still appear under "Documents". Is not possible to change this tag using Calibre. A workaround is to convert it back to EPUB and then again to ...

Another possible option for books purchased from Amazon is to see if there's a newer version of the book that's using their newer KFX format, what I think they call enhanced typesetting. In that case the Kindle's font/layout options do allow you to switch between ragged right and fully justified. Otherwise your only option is to remove the drm which allows ...
