    Followed instructions but I did not have option to download to IPad. I only got the option to re-download to Kindle or delete. Any other suggestions of how to bring in the option to download to IPad? Thanks

    @Marwan – make sure you have the Kindle App installed on your iPad. If you already have it installed, you might want to re-install it, and make sure it’s the version for the iPad and not the iPhone version.

    I downloaded Kindle for IPad. I am on my IPad and have accessed my Amazon account, went to mange kindle and to my orders. When I click on the + sign next to the book I want to download, I only get 2 options: Send Wirelessly to Kindle and option 2 in Delete this Title. Anything else I need to do? Thanks

    @Marwan: Do you have multiple accounts with Amazon? If so, you could be accessing the wrong one. Otherwise… wow I don’t have any other suggestion than to contact Amazon Kindle support. It could be a problem on their end with your account?

    Question…do I have to purchase my new Kindle from Amazon, or can I buy it from Best Buy and still download my purchased books from Amazon? I am assuming I can, but I want to be sure before I make my purchase.

    My Kindle Touch purchased in 2012 will not switch on. If I buy a new kindle how do I transfer the books on there to a new kindle, bearing in mind I cannot switch the original one on.

    This may not solve your problem, however a friend of mine had the same problem. All you do is hold the “Power On” button for about 30 seconds. It should restart. It effectively re-initialises your Kindle, and is also a fix if your Kindle freezes.

    I purchased Kim Kerr’s book “goerings war book two, Spain and Moscow”, but when I open it, all the content is actually book one of the series, not book two? The Cover art is correct, it list correctly in my library, but has the previous books content. I’ve tried deleting it from the Kindle and downloading it again, but get the same error.

    Do you have to transfer each book individually or can you transfer multiple books? Thanks

  • Peggy Sue July 18, 2018, 2:28 pm

    Thank you so much! Your answer to my question was so straightforward and “simple” others made it seem so complicated 🙃 I won’t forget this! : )

    I bought a kindle fire 10. I have a kindle app on my iPhone that I was using before my purchase. Everything transferred except one ARC. How do I get this to transfer???
