How to Transfer eBooks from Computer to Kindle

Amazon Kindle books can be read on Kindle eReaders, Kindle Fire tablets as well as other smart devices with Kindle apps installed. But if you’ve got non-Amazon eBooks or eBooks in a non-Kindle-supported format on your computer, it won’t work by simply transferring them to Kindle devices for reading. In this article, we are going to show you how to make sure the eBooks you transfer from your computer to Kindle via USB cable can be read normally.

Nowadays, most eBooks are protected in DRM. If you want to put eBooks purchased from Adobe, Kobo, Nook or any other stores, instead of Amazon, to Kindle, you’ll have to remove the DRM before transferring them to the device. In addition, Kindle doesn’t support EPUB format. If you directly transfer your .epub books to Kindle, it won’t recognize them let alone open them. Therefore, it’s a must to convert them to a Kindle-supported format, like MOBI, before executing the transferring. In a word, to efficiently transfer eBooks from computer to Kindle for reading, make sure the eBooks are in a Kindle-supported DRM-free format.
