Kindle devices support a wide number of formats such as OGG, AAC, WAV, MP4, MP3, MIDI, AMR and non-DRM formats. You just need to copy the music files on the Kindle and that’s it. You are ready to listen to your favorite songs.
Back in the day, it was not possible to have audio files in Kindle, but with the updates, things have changed and now, one can easily listen to his/her favorite music without any issue. One method of listening to the songs involves the uploading of files to the cloud service of Amazon while the second option will like you to transfer files to the device’s memory. Let us take a look at both the methods in detail.
Note: The methods explained in this blog post is for Kindle Fire, Kindle Fire HD, HD8, HD10, and HDX. If you are not able to transfer the music files, then you must get in touch with Kindle Fire Support help.
Transferring audio files to Amazon Cloud
You can easily listen to the music on your Amazon Kindle. You just have to transfer the files to Amazon Cloud. Here are the steps that you can follow to do so:
On your PC, open the folder where your music files are stored. Now, you have to open your web browser and go to Amazon Music. You will find an option labeled as ‘Upload your music’, which is on the left side of the page.
- Install Amazon Music app and then open it on your PC.
- Once that is done, you need to select ‘Your Library’ option that is given at the top of your PC screen.
- You will see an option named ‘View files on your computer’, so select that icon to move ahead with the process.
- Now, it is possible for you to upload any song or album, as you just have to right-click on that particular file or folder.
The files and/or folders that you select are going to be uploaded to the Cloud. You can also access those files and folders from the ‘Music’ app of the device.
Transferring music files to the Kindle memory
- Connect your Kindle device to the PC or laptop using a micro-USB to USB cable. If you can’t find Kindle drive on your PC/laptop, then immediately contact Amazon Kindle Support.
- If the device gets hooked up to the PC/laptop, then you should unlock the device.
- You will now be able to see Kindle Fire as a media device. Mac users will have to download & install a software named Android File Transfer and see the ‘Fire’ or ‘Kindle’ icon on the home screen of the PC. Windows users can look in ‘My Computer’ or ‘This PC’.
- Open the respective options depending on which PC you are using, and you will see a folder by the name of ‘Music’. In that folder, you can easily drag & drop any music file that you wish to listen to on your Kindle device.
The files will then upload to the Amazon Cloud and will also be accessed from your Kindle device in that Music app. If the files are not present there, then seek assistance from Kindle support.
You have the option to get all the details about this process from the official Kindle website, i.e., www Kindle Com Support. If you can’t find anything significant on the website, then you can also give a call to the technical support working in the company. The main thing for you is to get Kindle Help, so how you are getting should not be a matter of concern.
