File Transfer Instructions for Mobi Files

There are a few ways to send your PRC file to your Kindle:

  3. Sending it to your Kindle

Transfer by connecting your Kindle to your computer:

  1. Download the MOBI format file to your computer.

  3. Drag and drop the file to your Kindle’s “documents” folder, using your computer’s file browser.

E-mail the MOBI file:

– Add an entry for “@maximintegrated.com” if you plan to use the Maxim website’s “Mail MOBI file” features (which e-mail the file for you).
