Where are kindle files stored in my pc?

I have downloaded a book for off line ready. Looked like they were well hidden. I tried to convert a kindle book to pdf. Any ideas? I use Win xp.

They are in the My Kindle Content folder in your Documents folder.

Thanks for the info. I have tried all three above. Not there. Kindle files are .azm

What program are you using to convert the kindle book? Calibre?

Hi jhan,
I am thinking of EPUB converter.

+1 for Calibre, a great free programme.

The problem was finding where the book files are in the pc. I think Amazon has made them invisible. Any ideas?

I have downloaded one book from the Cloud to my pc but no where to be found.

Did you look in your My Kindle Content folder? The files will be named a jumble of letters and numbers.

Google says, it's in My Documents / My Kindle Content but it's not there at all.

Can you not just log into your kindle and re download it like Kobo allows?

Have you got Kindle For PC installed?

geek_datoofairy, Jun 25, 11:35 pm

Downloading was not the problem. Book downloaded into my pc and can be read using PC version of Kindle reader. The problem is that the file cannot be found by Window Explorer. Cheers.
