    Mmm mine work alright , just click on Transfer to Device If I remember correctly. It was a lot easier than I thought It would be.

    Are you sure its even possible ?

    Pretty sure the kindle fire makes using third party books as hard as possible. Think you need some kind of app file manager to do it

    Try looking under Docs instead of Books.

    a system upgrade to Windows Vista or similar is required

    What OS are you running W95? – Vista is way old

    You should be able to see the Kindle as an external device, providing your PC supports USB, you should then be able to simply drag and drop the files

    Calibre work OK with XP so it’s not that

    Can you not see the Kindle in My Computer when it’s connected via USB?
    You sometimes have to give things a couple of minutes to show up
