if you register your kindle, you can go to AMazon and just click the button. I believe you can also email them. Your email is your name you register with @ amazonkindle (?), com. That one you'd have to look up. It gives you that info when you register. I've also downloaded books to my computer and transferred them with the USB Cord. My passporter in particular when I went to WDW last fall. Then I always had my information handy at the parks and resorts without carrying the book!

I am trying to put it on my Kindle HD Fire. What button are you talking about? Amazon wants me to buy it again. How do I get it from my computer to the Kindle?

OK, I went online on the Kindle and logged in on Passporter and clicked the download button and the message on my Kindle read "This item is protected with DRM and cannot be read on your Kindle. Please remove the item from your device and download it again or purchase a copy form the Kindle Store." I don't want to have to buy it again.

I hate being technologically challenged. LOL

wahoooooooooooooooooooooo!! there are LOST of free kindle books out there. Mostly cookbooks and how-to books, but I've gotten some pretty good books as well, along with a couple about Disney. If interested, I can share links/addresses.
The kindle is SO much fun! I don't have a 'smart' phone so I took my kindle on my last vacation, having downloaded a few Disney apps......nice!!!!

I would love to hear your recommendations. And I think at least one of ours will be with us while there, too.

I am also trying to download the e-book to my Kindle Fire....the original, not HD.

I ordered the Passporter from this site not from Amazon so I'm pretty sure that the instructions above don't apply.

I am logged into my Passporter account and clicked the download button. It shows that it downloaded but when I click on the downloaded file, it says "cannot open file ". Anyone have any ideas? I've downloaded it 3 times and always the same Msg.

my ebook /passporter was on my desktop. I just hooked up the cord from my computer to my kindle and transferred it that way. I worked great. Not sure thats HOW technically you would do it, but when I couldn't figure out any other way, thats what I did! Since Kindle is also an ANDROID, some apps for your android phone work on them. (Many don't), I think I have two and one is Disney times, for parades, etc. Good luck!

Thank you. I think I'll try just transfering it from my computer to my Kindle via USB.


I think I have that same App, for WDW times.

I am still not having any luck.

Can anyone provide step-by-step instructions?

Here is what I've done. From my Kindle Fire, I've gone onto the internet, gone to the Passporter store, found my orders and clicked on the Download button. It shows it's downloading and then it says download complete. I go to view my downloads and click on the Passporter and it says "cannot open file."

I also downloaded it onto my computer, plugged in the USB from my computer to my Kindle, but I can't figure out how to take it from the file to the Kindle. What am I missing? I click "send to", but my Kindle isn't an option anywhere.

I also tried emailing it to the Kindle email address that Amazon says is assigned to my Kindle fire and it still hasn't shown up in my documents.

This is so frustrating.

has it downloaded to your computer and not your kindle? I'd look through recent files/downloads and see if it's hidden away there.

When I loaded it from my computer to my kindle. I plugged the USB cord into my kindle and computer. A kindle pop-up/icon showed on my desktop. I just clicked/copy then clicked on the kindle/paste (If I remember right). You can always click and drag from one place to the next as well. Good luck. You can always contact the help desk too. Many places are very good and patient.
