Hello, I just bought new Kindle PW 10th gen. ( I found out that collections from my previous oooold kindle cannot be transfered - fine) but now I tried download my books to new one... I have cca 500 books... the device itself decided to download aprox 90 books and and then stopped... I hope I doesn't have to clik on every book and "add home" to download it to WP4
and second question... how often do you recharge your kindle? I am really disappointed with the stamina :/ .... its better with airplane mode on and no/or small light... but still... it's uncomparable to my old one :(
1 - you download a number of books by go to the YOUR ACCOUNT (top right of your Amazon web page)
- select Manage Your Content and Devices
- Select "SELECT ALL" on your contents listing - will select 200 books.
- Select DELIVER
- Select the device you want to deliver to.
If you 500 books you will need to do this three times.
2 - It is partly ansered by your quedtion 1
- Kindles "INDEX" each new book (creates links to every word in every book)
Indexing takes about 1 minute per average size book.
200 books = 200 minutes
This indexing eats batteries - so please keep your kindle on charge when doing this
A - You need to do a search on your kindle home page for kjhgioko or similar garbage - if kindle say zero then cool. If it says zero, 4 books not indexed then you have corrupted books - go DOWN to see the four books, remove them your kindle and download them again.
B - You can create and curate collections in the above MANAGE MY CONTENTS AND DEVICE. it may be easier if doing it on a nice big screen,
C - Why are you bothering to download 500 books? How about downloading a handful, reading, moving to "completed" collection and then either deleting them from your kindle of just leave them in the nice tidy collection?
Of course you must do whatever you like with device - just seem a lot of hard work to me. :)
d - I forgot to mention, all kindles INDEX every six months or so - so if you download your 500+ books be aware that in ..April next year your kindle will slow down, eat battery and rfuse to open books - not to worry, it's just indexing all 500 books :(
PS - Have you checked that it is latest software installed? How to do it top right of this page I believe.
Hope some of the above was helpful :) Regards, CW.
