Including various eBook formats to
Kindle Fire HDX
KF HDX is one of the most powerful tablets from Kindle. It comes loaded with
many features including a powerful processor and a breathtaking display.
This article focuses on addition of various eBook formats excluding the
proprietary kindle format.
Understanding various formats
First of all, we need to know what formats are what. For successful prediction
of formats, Kindle requires all files to have types. The formats which it
supports are AZW, KF8, MOBI and PRC. AZW is the best ebook format for
Kindle. KF8 format is also supported but it is new and won’t be easily read by
older devices. MOBI and PRC are eBook formats which are easily accepted by
both MOBI pocket Reader and KF HDX.
Kindle supports text formats such as TXT, PDF, DOC and DOCX. Even though
these formats are easily read, the same cannot be viewed just like Kindle
Books are used. These text formats are useful for reading supported personal
Some Unsupported formats
Some of you might have noticed that the most common format ePub is not
supported by KF HDX. It is easily viewable in many other popular tablets and
e-Readers. Even if that is the case, software like Calibre can help users to
create adaptable formats from ePub files.
Calibre is free software which can be installed on your computer. After
installing it, click on Add Books and then select Add books from a single
directory. This option helps to convert multiple files. You need to search and
select the books which are in ePub format. Once this is done books can be
converted using Convert books and then selecting Convert individually option.
You must be careful while choosing an output option.
Adding books to Kindle Fire HDX
Once the unrecognized formats are converted, KF HDX will do the rest but
first transferring the files to your device is required. This can be done by using
USB cable, Email or by making use of a valid Dropbox account. Once the files
are transferred you can browse the Books section. All the books on your HDX
hard disk will be shown in the main display. The ePub format which was
inaccessible minutes ago is also now available. If you are unable to view the
uploaded book, make sure that they were copied correctly and that the entire
book was loaded.
If you find it hard to follow the tips mentioned above, it is advised to get
professional help from any of the best eBook conversion service providers.
