My Kindle books from the Andriod Emulator are not showing up in EPubor. I have restarted everything including the computer. The path is set to the default; c:\users\amyww\My Kindle Content  That works for my Kindle for PC app. Do I need to change that to a different directory?
05/24/2023 10:53:31

You don't need to change the path. Kindle Converter is a different software, don't use it with the Kindle app for PC and Epubor Ultimate.

What you should do is to ensure that you enable the "Root permission" of LDPlayer9, and restart it to take effect. Then run again Kindle Converter, and wait for your downloaded books show under the "The Kindle Library". You can try to reinstall LDPlayer9 and Kindle apk, and configure the settings by following the user guide.

If there is the same problem, please feel free to contact us via support@epubor.com.
