Once installed, the software worked and I could download books to it. I could also add some existing books to the list of Kindle titles. I wrote back to the person called [email protected] to mention the problem with Firefox, but Amazon does not accept real email. I wondered where Kindle was keeping these books on my computer.

If this is the real purpose for finding your downloaded kindle content, just copying Kindle books from the original folder to another place is not the right method for backing up Kindle ebooks. Why?

Therefore, the correct way to back up your kindle books is removing Kindle DRM to get the DRM free books. If you have the DRM-free Kindle books, you do not have to worry about computer crash, Amazon account banned issues, books disappeared from Amazon account etc.

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.
But what if the eBooks you want to read on Kindle are in a non-Kindle-supported DRM-protected format? Can you transfer and read them on Kindle? Absolutely yes! Below is a step-by-step tutorial for your reference.
Note: If the eBooks you want to transfer to Kindle are in a Kindle-supported DRM-free format, please skip Step 1 - Step 4 and directly go to Step 5.
