The Kindle Touch uses Amazons own proprietary formats such as AZW, PRC, MOBI, KF8, and so on. The main format we are going to work with is MOBI, which is the main format you will find if you are downloading books from websites or using conversion software.
The first program we teach you how to use is Calibre. This is a free open source ebook management program that allows you a greater flexibility in editing ebooks. We show you how to import books into the program and edit them in your main library. In many cases you might download EPUB books from the internet and we show you how to convert these books to a Kindle Ready format. Then, we show you how to change the title and author names in case books you downloaded may be misspelled or have the wrong cover art, or no cover art at all. Lastly, we show you how to copy the books to your Amazon Kindle Touch.
Next, we show you the main directory structure of your Kindle via Windows Explorer. Sometimes directory structures can be a daunting experience for new users, so we show you the essential ones you want to be concerned about. Not only do we show you how to copy books, but also how to do music too.
This is a great tutorial video for people who have little to no experience copying books to their e-reader and want to learn how to do it. This can also be applicable to users interested in using Calibre for the first time.
