Hi,

Thanks for using JustAnswer.com to ask your question, I am Cris.

Any book you purchase using your Amazon account remains in your cloud. Any Kindle or Kindle supported device you register to your account, gives you immediate access to your books. From the cloud section.

On your new Kindle you must connect to WiFi then register it to your Amazon/Kindle account. Then check the cloud section for all of your books, select the book and it will download onto the device.

Please let me know if this answers your question. If you have any further questions or follow ups please let me know. BEFORE selecting any negative rating. I will answer them.

I have tried this but it is showing nothing and the cloud is greyed out. I have just purchased a book and this is showing but none of the ones from my old kindle. I should explain that the old kindle was one of the very early versions with the keyboard at the bottom . Could this be the reason and if so have I possibly lost all the books?

No, it does not matter how old the Kindle is. All books that you purchase with the same account remain part of your account.

Please log into Kindle Manage Page and see if your books are there. Make sure you are using the same account that you had your older Kindle registered to.

I will need to contact Amazon as I think I may have more than one account

Do you have another email you might have used for another acccount?

If so use the kindle manage page link. When you reach the site click on password XXXXX Enter the email address and folow the prompts you will receive a email with reset info. See if you can then log in and see your books.

Let me know the outcome.
