They are in various formats which my original EBook could handle (ZIF, PDF, word etc )


 


Some of the book were on the original reader and others I obtained from varios web sites


 


I was connected via the USB cable supplied by Kindle

Hi Derrick,

What do you mean by your original Ebook ?

Did you use some other Ebook reader before getting this Kindle ?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

yes, the original ebook designed in Holland and marketed from the States some five years ago. if came with over one hundred book already loaded and could cope with Zip, PDF and many other formats and I have downloaded many other books over the year from the varios sites. If the Kindle will not let me load and read them I will have to send it back as not fit for the job

Hi Derrick,

Your Kindle Paperwhite supports following formats :
Kindle Format 8 (AZW3), Kindle (AZW), TXT, PDF, unprotected MOBI, PRC natively; HTML, DOC, DOCX, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP through conversion

For : Kindle Format 8 (AZW3), Kindle (AZW), TXT, PDF, unprotected MOBI, PRC -- do this :

You need to have the files on your computer first. Then do this :

  1. Connect your Kindle to your computer with the USB cable.

    Your Kindle appears in the same location on your computer that external USB drives appear.

    • Windows: Your Kindle will appear in the Computer or My Computer folder.
    • Mac: Your Kindle will appear on the desktop.
  2. Open the Kindle folder, and then open the documents folder.
  3. Locate the downloaded file on your computer, and then drag and drop the compatible file into the documents folder in the Kindle folder.
  4. Safely eject your Kindle from your computer.
  5. From your Kindle, tap the On Device tab to view your Kindle content.

 

For : HTML, DOC, DOCX, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP -- you need to use "Kindle Personal Documents Service"

Instructions : LINK
