If you want to directly transfer them from one Kindle device to another Kindle device or device of other manufacturers, you won't succeed for most of the time. Why?

What's more, most devices on the market like Sony, Kobo, Nook E-Reader only support EPUB and PDF format, no supporting for Kindle AZW3 format. To solve both of these two problems, you need AZW3 converter to help you.
