Why won't my Kindle sync my contents/books?
I just purchased a new book off the Amazon website but it won't sync to my Kindle.
You should check if the Book is compatible with your device. On the product page you will see something like " Available for following devices" if this doesn't appear than the e-Book is compatible with all Kindle models. If the option is there you have to check if your device is listed otherwise it's incompatible. If your device is compatible but the book still doesn't download try following:
- Hard Reset your device by holding the On/Off button 40 seconds or until you see a picture of a tree with a boy reading underneath it.
- Set your device in flight mode for 10-15 seconds after which turn flight mode off.
- Sever the wifi connection and sett it up again under settings.
- Tip on the button Cloud and try downloading the book manually.
- Log off and back on your account under settings.
- Check under "Manage your content and devices" (https://www.amazon.com/mn/dcw/myx.html/r... settings if Whispersync is on or off.
If nothing helps from here contact Amazon Client Service since you might have some issues with your wifi module.
Thank you, I was able to download the books manually. Weird that my whispersync quit working suddenly
Mine too! I would read off either my kindle, my iPad or my iPhone and I’d always get a message about syncing to the latest page. Don’t get that anymore and nothing will sync. So frustrating. Whispersync is on in all devices
This started yesterday for me. Very frustrating. It happened after all of a sudden my Kindle reader tried to start Alexa which I do not use and in the process it unregistered my kindle. Very weird and now my devices will not sync
Tried reloading the book on each device but did not help.
Thank you. I doubled checked and it was off.
I had the same issue (specifically I could download books, but the current book I was reading would not sync the page to my computer nor my phone from my kindle -- the kindle would give an error as well), but the above steps actually did not work
The steps were similar to these, https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/..., which also did not work.
but while I as logged into my settings area in Amazon I looked for the book in question and it said there was an 'update' to my book. I updated and pushed the book to all three of my devices, no dice. So then I just removed the book from all devices, re-pushed to the three, and then it started working (sadly the page is now stuck at page 993 of 993 while only 56% complete with the book, but eh it syncs now)
so if you can download on your devices, the version of the book may be different and you may need to redownload the book (granted for me I needed to remove it from all devices then re-download, so mark the location in the book!)
If the book is stuck at a certain page and won't budge try to modify the font size, that helps in many cases ;)
Thanks for your answer, I would like to try that but... did you lose your previous Notes & Highlights for that particular book?
That did the trick! Thank you!
I tried removing the book in question from the app and kindle and then re-downloaded both, and highlights syncing is now working again . Thank you for the advice.
I found the following steps worked.
I had previously downloaded a sample on my Kindle, then purchased the book via Kindle for Mac. However it wouldn't transfer to Kindle. Here are the steps I used -
1. On the Mac, log back in to Amazon
2. Go to Your Account >> Your Orders
3. Click Content and Devices
4. Click on the "..." next to your book name
5. Click Download & Transfer via USB
6. Select your Kindle device and click download
the book should now download to the Kindle. Hope this helps.
Didn't work for me. Anybody get it working?
Worked... at first i downloaded with the Kindle device connected via the USB. That is not how to do it. You first download it without connecting the Kindle via the USB. Then you go to your downloaded files. You connect the Kindle via USB and transfer the file from the downloaded files to the Kindle folder.
I tried all the other steps to get my Kindle to reconnect to the wife and it isn't working anymore... what a bummer because i'll only be able to sync using a USB cable from now on
Typical Apple user always has to broadcast their crappy brand. We-do-not-care. Plus this discussion is about wirelessly connecting through Whispernet. You're babbling on about USB cables. Do you think people would use Whispernet if cabling was available? No! Logic just seems to escape so many Apple users. Probably why they wasted so much money on the product.
First, check to see if your Kindle is WiFi enabled. If it is connected to the internet, your Whispersync is not turned on. Tap on your menu tab, go to Settings, Device Options, Personalize Your Kindle, then Advanced options. If the Whispersync component in not enabled, tap on it and enable it. If your books are still not syncing, your Whispersync Device Synchronization is most likely disabled on your Amazon account. Sign into your account, click on Manage Your Content and Devices the click Settings. Under Device Synchronization, validate that Whispersync is enabled.
This is garbage boilerplate. None of these work, and your %#*@ worthless advice is flooding out any real answers that might help. Does "have you tried turning it off and on?" sound familiar?
I cant read the book i bought on my amazon kindle on my portable kindle. Also you say there is a problem with my acvount what is the problem with ny account?
My Kindle No 4 will not sync my purchased book
Can you help please
what do i need to do?
Have you tried the steps that I proposed in this thread? If logging off and back on doesn't help. Try setting it back to factory settings. Or one more possibility is to delete the WiFi connection and reconnect it. Let me know if it doesn't work I'll think of something else;)
I did ALL those things and it still doesn't work. Any more ideas?
Just follow these steps:'''
1. Tap on your menu tab, go to Settings, Device Options, Personalize Your Kindle, then Advanced options.
2. If the Whisper sync component in not enabled, tap on it and enable it.
3. If your books are still not syncing, your Whisper sync Device Synchronization is most likely disabled on your Amazon account.

There are no such "device options" under "settings" for the Kindle. Maybe for later Kindles but the original first Kindle don't have these options and you cannot fix this problem as suggested
The problem is people here aren't identifying the model they are using so all these answers are pointless. I have a Kindle DX which uses cell towers to connect wirelessly (no WiFi). It mysteriously ceased to sync wirelessly all of a sudden several weeks ago. But I can still use its rather rudimentary internet just fine. Called Amazon. Totally useless.
I had tried several of the suggestions above and none worked. I could read my books on the Kindle Cloud, but when trying to sync with the Kindle app on my iPhone it would never sync - or vice versa. Rebooted phone, ensured whispersync was enabled on amazon site and on iphone, removed book from iphone and redownloaded, etc. I did one other task that made this start working again for me. I went to the Amazon site under Manage Content and Devices and under the Devices tab I made my iPhone the "Default Device" by clicking on the elipsis button next to my iphone. After doing this the sync started working right away as expected.
Even setting it as the default device didn't work. I've restarted the device several times and the wifi i use is connected and has a strong signal, still the Kindle will not connect to the wifi and noting works
I got all excited reading the above, but it didn't work either. Rats.
I checked Whispersync toggling it back and forth just to be sure but there was no change.
I fixed it by deregistering the Kindle app on my iPhone6s and then logging back in. Deregistering deletes your entire library but logging back in again triggers it to re-populate your library from your Amazon Kindle account
iPhone app: More/Settings/Registration Update/Deregister this Kindle. Then just log back in using your email address
Hi! I just read elsewhere that in de and then re-registering, you tend to lose highlights and notes on the repopulated books. I wonder how this happens since all notes /high;ights etc are backed up to the Kindle cloud. And the repopulation on a re-registered device happens from there. Please share your experience.
I had issue where I sent from my mail to my kindle, I could see the books in the kindle app on my phone but could not seem to get it on the Kindle and they were both on the same wifi network. I did had to ‘forget’ the wifi on the kindle and then re entered the password before the books showed up.
I have had a Kindle for almost 6 years, along with a second Kindle and an app on my phone. I had a different question but this one popped up right after it. I've read all of the above comments and noticed that most of the devices listed are Apple iPhones or iPads. I have an Android smart phone (specifically a Motorola Droid turbo 2)and have never had a problem with a download or sync. Is it possible that the problem is with compatibility with apple products? (Both my Kindles are on Wi-Fi.)
Not related to being Apple products. Mine is an Android and similar problems experienced.
2 books of my entire library were not synching with Whispersync. Tried everything, from erasing books from all devices, to put in Air Plane Mode, etc.
Also deleted from all devices, deleted from my Amazon account, sent it back with Calibre, etc. Nothing seemed to help.
What actually end up fixing my problem was just rebooting my Kindle Oasis. That was it. Once my Oasis was rebooted, the phone started to say I was in the last page already, which only for this book specifically was not doing it.
Now hit the sync button and pages are synched just fine.
Again , all my books were synching fine, just 2 books I was having issues. Hitting on my Android phone also didnt pop up any message. Once my kindle was off, the Android started to say I was in my last page, like something was stucked in between those 2 devices.
Oasis came back synching perfectly the 2 books.
Hope this helps someone. I was going nutts with this.
My kindle is not getting some of the books I'm ordering they are going to a ekindle which I don't have it's a plain kindle I have just lately getting this problem Don't lie to me is one of them
On the amazon account, there will be a ekindle as a device, try setting your own device as default. Happened to my wife's kindle as well.
I have book in my phone in Kindle format. I want to sync this book to my Kindle ebook
How did you add to the phone? My works if I send the email to the email@example.com. that way all devices will receive it.
I have downloaded a book on my kindle app to my iPhone why won’t it synch on my kindle reader?
If downloaded feom the store it should. Go to amazon.com and check My Devices. See if the book can be found there. If it can it should sync. Try to foece a sync manually on the device.
Hello Kim, Please tap on your menu tab, go to Settings, Device Options, Personalize Your Kindle, then Advanced options. If the Whispersync component in not enabled, tap on it and enable it. If your books are still not syncing, your Whispersync Device Synchronization is most likely disabled on your Amazon account. For More Visit:- https://supportandhelp4u.com
Have you looked in your Archive folder? I’ve had newly purchased books that Amazon swore had been delivered to my device which I eventually found there.
I just had the same problem with my Kindle not syncing to my phone app version.
I found a solution that's very simple; go back to your Kindle and do a search for the book you have on your phone (the one that won't sync). Just seach for the title of the book - when Kindle finds it, it will start downloading it.
If the issue is that your phone / tablet app won’t synch with your Kindle, then try deleting and reinstalling the app on your phone or tablet. I’m guessing there is some cache on the phone / tablet app that gets corrupted which prevents the synch from working.
It seems like almost nobody manages their books on their computer. Isn’t that easier? Download to your computer where you can keep a million books if you want, all easily organized in folders and subfolders, just how YOU want it, not how almighty Amazon deems it. Or use a flat land type of organization where things are tagged so you can have one title in more than one category. Of course none of this control is available on portable devices and if it was their storage capacities are so limited for most of us not blowing $1000 on a depreciating phone that will be worth 1/3 of that soon.
Once on your computer attach a USB cable and transfer to your tablet/ereader. How difficult is that? Keep a folder/subfolder system on your computer identical to your portable device so you can keep track of everything and sync things with a backup program if you want. Isn’t it easier to manage your life on a 24-30” screen instead of a 5-7” screen?
And who buys books/music/movies? There are MILLIONS free online on torrent sites and free download sites. Only an Apple fan could possibly be so dense as to flush their money down the toilet by buying ANYTHING online then telling the world. For the odd book that is good, mention it on social media or send a donation direct to the author showing your appreciation. Because you know 95% of books written these days are regurgitated drivel. As for movies, think back and ask yourself how many hours you’ve spent watching them and what good it did you. If you’re a thinking individual you will come to a very sobering, stark conclusion. Almost none benefited us. They are a pitiful excuse for escape we use way too much. And its only getting worse and worse as people don’t face reality in their lives. Often having your internet disconnected is the only thing that can wake people up.
