Question about Samsung Tablets & eReaders

1 Answer

I'm an old duffer and I plan on getting my wife a tablet she can read her books on or play games on for Christmas. Thinking of getting either a Kindle Fire HDX OR Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook. I'm trying

I have looked at the new Nook but I don't know anyone that has a new Kindle. I like the look of the Samsung display all I have ever seen of the Kindle has been on-line and that doesn't really tell me much.... My grand daughter does have older models of both and says to definitely go with Kindle because she can't get ebooks from her library with her nook. I checked that out and found an app Overdrive that allows you to get ebooks from my local library just fine with a Nook. I find prices for ebooks are identical between B&N and Amazon for at least the few titles I checked out. I feel you have probably evaluated both and have a good feel for one or the other.

Being a semi-old duffer myself :-), I can only offer little. I know nothing about the Samsung. My Kindle is almost 3 yrs old. That's archaic by today's standards. The HDX seems like a wonderful upgrade. However, I LOVE my Kindle Fire. It's easy, fast, great wireless with really nice features. The book selection is amazing thru Kindle (whether you "rent", buy or just get the free ones). My experience with tech support has been great! (Had to call a few times in the beginning.)

I got the same one for my husband 4 mos later. He's happy and has never had any problems. The only issue I have is there's no camera and downloading some odd files these days are impossible -- only because they're huge!!! You'll make a good decision and your wife will love what ever you choose. Good luck and Happy Holidays!

Try deleting your current books and then re-syncing. Your files seem to be corrupted during download.

I want to buy a new kindle but am concerned about transfering my books to the new kindle.


Two methods.
First: A computer is required. Connect the old Kindle to the computer it should show up as a new drive. Open that drive and find the books. Transfer them to the computer. Plug in new Kindle and do the same only transfer the transferred books from the computer onto the new Kindle.
Two: If you purchased the books from sources like Amazon, your books are saved on their cloud. Simply connect your new device and download all your books again.

I have a loaned book but am unable to see it on my Kindle list. I have accepted the loaned book but cannot see it on my list


Borrow from a Friend You can borrow a Kindle book from a friend. When the book is available, you will receive an e-mail notification that will allow you to download the book to your Fire tablet, Kindle device, or Kindle reading app.

To download your borrowed book:
  1. Open the e-mail message "A Loaned Book for You."
  2. Click the Get your loaned book now button. Your web browser will automatically launch to Amazon so you can accept the loan.
  3. Sign in to your Amazon account.
    • If you have a Fire tablet, Kindle device, or Kindle reading app, select which device you would like the book to be delivered to, and then click Accept loaned book.
    • If you do not have a Fire tablet, Kindle device, or Kindle reading app, click Accept loaned book and follow the on-screen instructions to download a free Kindle reading app.

How to transfer books from my kindle fire they have been sent from amazon to me they were ordered and paid for for my wifes reading only kindle


Hook your kindle fire to your computer. When the auto play window appears click on "view files". When your kindle hard drive files appear then look for the books file on your kindle. Click on the books folder then copy and paste them on your desktop then unplug your kindle. Plug your wife's kindle in then do the same to open her books folder then copy and paste the books from your desktop into her book folder.

Sounds like your wife's kindle is registered in your name. You can find out by logging into your account on amazon. Up the top open your account window then scroll down and click on " Manage Your Devices". If your wife's kindle in on your account then you have to unregistered it from your account then see would register it in her name. She can do this while on her kindle table.

How to delete all read books?


I've got a kindle and as far as I know you have to go to your library and delete them line by line. There is no select all facility, which would have been handy when I emptied the wifes Kindle which had 800 books on it.

Kindle fire hd 8'9 freezing and not working


Many programs dont work well on Kindle no matter what they tell you. The free ones are pretty much a waste land I have found. The Kindle is a great tool, dont get me wrong they really intended it for movie watching, an books. It is no iPad that for sure. I dont know how old he is but he would have been better off just purchasing a game system. They market this stuff for everyone an the real market is for a limited group. Some games are nice, but most dont work as advertised. Tetris is a game that does not play well on Kindle. Delete the game if its free as soon as he has problems. Some times the programmer will write back an say well you need to get the paid version. How well I know that one. Some calculators I downloaded for free were mot accurate in scientific mode. How useful is that. He did not get a bad product, it just is mot a gaming system as the Sony an Nintendo type handhelds. Check out some forums to find which games do work with it well. It truly is a wonderful product.
