    I have copied over a lot of .Mobi files using Calibre. But they are not all listed on the Kindle. I can see them from WIndows under the documents directory. If I filter by ‘All Items’ nothing is displayed, if I filter by Docs, I see some of the items (16 of over 50 books).

    The kindle has NOT been registered, so not sure if this is causing the issue. Some books were added from one PC others from another PC.

     I reset the device (deleting all content). Download and checked the meta data files for all books. Then reloaded the books from one PC. Seems to have done the trick.

    Do I have to use Windows Explorer or can I open using Mozilla Firefox when I connect my Kindle to my PC and / or use my PC to download books via Calibre?
    Please keep simple I am a new user

  • Firefox is a Web browser. Windows explorer is a file manager. They are unrelated. I should imagine you could use DOS but it would be rather complex. Open Windows explorer by holding down the “windows” key 
    on your keyboard  (looks like a square flag waving in the breeze) and tapping the letter “e.”  To add to your confusion, Microsoft calls their Web browser “Internet explorer,” but it has nothing to do with Windows explorer (think of it as the difference between a deep-ocean explorer such as Jacques Cousteau, and a Ford Explorer; they don’t do the same thing at all).

    Thank you so much Markus that was so helpful. You are a really nice guy to go to all that trouble.
