How To Send Personal Documents To Kindle

by Greg on January 25, 2010

If you have personal documents on your computer that you would like to view on your Kindle, you can transfer them to your Kindle via a USB cable. You can transfer your personal documents, MP3 files and audible files to your Kindle whether you own a PC or a Mac. Here are the requirements:

  • Windows-based: Windows 2000 or later.
  • Macintosh: Mac OS X 10.2 or later.
  • USB port: An available port or an attached USB hub with an available port.

Here are the complete instructions on how to transfer your personal documents: Transfer personal documents to your Kindle

A couple of things you should be aware of:
* The file size of each personal document should be less than 50MB
* Your email to transfer the documents should contain 25 or less attached personal documents.
* There is a fee of $.15 per megabyte to send your documents (inside the U.S. wireless coverage area). Outside the U.S. the cost is $.99 per megabyte.
* Here are the file types that can be transferred to your Kindle:
   – Microsoft Word (.DOC)
   – Structured HTML (.HTML, .HTM)
   – RTF (.RTF)
   – JPEG (.JPEG, .JPG)
   – GIF (.GIF)
   – PNG (.PNG)
   – BMP (.BMP)
   – PDF (.PDF): Look below for details.
   – Microsoft Word (.DOCX) is supported in our experimental category.
It’s also worth noting that all of the above files can be combined in a compressed zip file.
