Transfer kindle ebooks to another kindle device?

Many eBook lovers may have a Kindle, and maybe his/her friends and families also have Kindle devices, so there is a question: How to transfer Kindle eBooks from one Kindle Fire or e-ink Kindle to another kindle device? Because of Amazon's account limitation, people can't transfer ebooks between Kindle devices freely.

If you are a regular visitor to our site, you must know a fact: We will always find a way to help solve all kinds of eBook reading problems, no exception with transfering books from one Kindle device to another.

Transfer ebooks from an old Kindle to a new Kindle Fire

To transfer downloaded (not purchased) books:

Step 1: Connect your old Kindle to your computer via USB.
You will find your kindle device as a drive under "My Computer", Click it and open the drive.

Step 2: There should be multiple folders. Open the folders and drag selected files from the Kindle and drop them into the computer's hard drive, transfer ebooks and other documents from the old Kindle to your computer.

Step 3: Connect another Kindle to your computer via USB, then there will be a removable disk displaying in your computer, open it and transfer the documents those files copied from your old Kindle to the new one. For audio books please put them in the Kindle's "Audible" directory, and for normal books please place them in the "Documents"  directory.

To transfer purchased books:

All your purchased Kindle booksa are stored in your account's Kindle Cloud, all you need to do is de-register your Amazon account in the old Kindle then re-register it on the new one. Go to the reading app, all the books you have ever purchased in Amazon Store will show up on your bookshelf.

Share books between two Kindle devices registered with the same account

Note of Caution:

You are allowed to register your Amazon account on several Kindle devices, then your purchased books will not auto-sync to both of your Kindles, but only the later registered one, at the same time, those already downloaded books still remain in your old Kindle.

For you newly purchased Amazon books, you can still control which device to sync the item to in the Manage Kindle page.

Step 1: Register the second Kindle with the same account registered to the first one. Maybe you purchased a Kindle Touch before then get a new Kindle Fire HD, or your friend or family have got another Kindle and you want to share your purchased book to him/her. Never mind, in one word, it is possible to register your account in another Kindle and won't do much harm on your previous Kindle. After successful registration, please go to Amazon official site then navigate to "Manage Your Content and Devices" (Formerly "Manage your Kindle"). From "Your Content" you will see all your purchased files.

manage your kindle to transfer

Step 2: Click on "Deliver" button. From the new pop up window, you can see all your registered Kindle devices and apps, which means, although you can't auto-sync your purchased books to your old Kindle device anymore, but you can also manually deliver them to any of your registered device.

Up by now, you have learnt how to transfer contents from an old Kindle device to a new one; and how to register on two Kindle devices with the same account and transfer purchased contents to them.

But what if you are not convenient to share your account with anyone else but only some books? Yes you can lend them out, but you must sacrifice your own 15 reading days, which is not that satisfying.

Therefore you need a method to share and transfer your books among unlimited Kindle devices.

Transfer downloaded / purchased eBooks to other Kindle devices

Transfer downloaded (DRM-free) books to other Kindle devices:

For DRM free eBooks, you can easily transfer them to other Kindle devices with USB cable freely.

You just need to simply plug your Kindle to computer with the USB cable, then there will be a removable disk, open the disk and find the books you want to transfer to other Kindles, then copy them out to your local drive. Now things have been finished with this Kindle.

Plug another Kindle on your computer and it will be recognised as a removable disk soon. Paste the books you previously copied out to the current Kindle device. For a Kindle Fire (HD) model, make sure to put the DRM-free Kindle books (mostly MOBI) to "Books" folder. Now you can read those books on another Kindle freely.

Transfer purchased Amazon books to other Kindle devices:

If you do not want to give your account to other people to login, or do not want to lend your books out. You have to remove your Amazon books' DRM to make them sharable.

And all you need is just a professional program to decrypt your Kindle books. Click the buttons below then you can get it:

Windows Version Download Mac Version Download


For how to operate this software, please refer to this introduction:

After getting the DRM free Amazon books, you can just transfer them to other Kindles as the above method shows.

Tips: If you want to transfer Amazon Kindle books to non-Kindle devices like iPad, Nook, Sony, and other eReaders which don't accept Mobi format, you need to remove the DRM first then convert those books to ePub format, which are suitable for other eReader devices.

I have tried unsuccessfully to "deliver" a book in my paperwhite to my other old version (2008) kindle.  The book just does not appear.  Both are on the same account.
What am I doing wrong.  
11/19/2014 18:24:45
The old version (2008) Kindle doesn't support the new format from Paperwhite. Please convert the file to .mobi then try again.

I have transferred a book from my old 2008 kindle to my paperwhite,  but can't go the other way.  You say to convert the file to MOBI.  How is that done, step by step??

You can use a freeware called Calibre to convert files to .mobi format. Use the search box in our site then you can find relative guide posts. Thank you

Your daughter can sign in with your Amazon account to sync the books and download them. You can also use our software to remove DRM from the books and then directly send the DRM free ebooks to her.

I am wondering if someone can help me. My parents both have kindle's under the same amazon account but each kindle is registered under their name. My mom bought a book but she sent it to my dad's kindle by mistake. She is asking me how to move it to her kindle and I am not sure how to move the book from one registered kindle to another. Would I just log into their amazon account and go to the manage kindle page and manually transfer that book from my dad's kindle to moms?

I am upgrading from an older Kindle with a keyboard Gen2 maybe (About 4 or 5 years old (good working order - will become the wife's.)to the new, cheap one - one below paperwhite. I have copied the documents file from Kindle # 1 to my P.C. Every title has 4 files *.el, *.phl, *.azw3 and *.apnx

The "documents" flder has sub-folders -looks like every author and sometimes more than one folder per author containing 2 types of files - *.MOBI and *.apnx

I assume I can copy the entire "documents" file as is to my kindle # 2? taking both groups of files.

Please confirm. Hoping to do all this today, tomorrow at the latest.

Thanks very Much.

4 files, but just one ebook file.
You can't read the ebook file on any other devices, it's contains DRM.
Why not download the software one this site?
download and install Epubor Ultimate then connect your Kindle device to you PC/Mac, the device will show on the software's right side.

Remove the DRM at first, then copy the decrypted files to new devices.
