How do I transfer files from iTunes and my computer to my Kindle Fire?

Q. I recently received Kindle Fire as a Christmas gift and I want to be able to upload videos, pictures, and music in it but the package didn't come with a micro-USB cable (it's an accessory that I have to purchase separately). I don't want to purchase a micro-USB cable. Can I use the micro-USB cable from my WD external hard drive? Is there a way for me to upload my files to Amazon Cloud and download them to my Kindle Device (not Cloud) library so that I can access them even without Wi-Fi? I am travelling soon in a 14 hour flight and figured this Kindle Fire would be useful to cure boredom on the plane, only if I can watch videos and play music with it in a Wi-Fi absent environment. Note: If there is a way for me to go around this without having to buy the USB cable, that would be really helpful! Thanks for your help guys!

A. Convert your iTunes music to .mp3 files and then upload them to Amazon Cloud drive, then sync them to your Kindle Fire. You can do all this through the cloud on your computer and Kindle Fire will pick them up automatically.

If you don't have the source mp3 files, it is difficult to extract songs directly off of iPod to PC first. This would be easier if you had the songs on PC. You also can consider paid program iSyncr which costs $2.99 and can sync your iTunes music library with Kindle Fire and can be found here http://amzn.to/zsR3eg

Is their 3G? or just wifi?

How does the specs compare to the ipad 2. i know its not as good but yea, how does it compare.

A. Hi, B, iPad2 is much better for sure but is also heavier, larger, and much more expensive. Kindle Fire is Wi-Fi only. You can get on the web and youtube but here's a list of currently known limitations of Kindle Fire:
1. Kindle Fire doesn't have microSD slot that, for example, Nook Color has thus it is stuck with 6 GB usable internal storage unlike Nook Color that can get up to 32 GB card in. Kindles are made to be almost like a "dumb terminal" of the past to make sure you're tied up to Amazon's storage on the web (for which you need Wi-Fi connection to get to) and you can only store content you get from Amazon there, not other files. Quoting Amazon on Kindle Fire: "Free cloud storage for all Amazon content". Get it, Amazon content?
2. The stats of how long the battery can last (Kindle Fire theory is 7.5 hours) are taken with Wi-Fi off. It will last only about 3 hours if you use it to access content from their Cloud storage over Wi-Fi.
3. Amazon can spy on your web activity through their new cloud-integrated web browser of Kindle Fire.
4. VERY IMPORTANT � lack of microSD slot means that if you decide to root your Kindle Fire, you�ll have to root the actual device thus there will be no coming back. On Nook Color, you can make it boot from a �rooted� microSD card and if you want to get back to the original Nook you can just take out the card and reboot.
5. Kindle Fire doesn't have a camera.
6. Kindle Fire has about 70% less usable screen area than iPad 2.
7. Kindle doesn't support eBooks in ePub format that is the most used format in the world.
8. Kindle app store contains only Amazon approved apps and it does not include (and will not include) Netflix app that iPad has and Nook Color is getting thus again you're stuck with Amazon content only.
9. Amazon confirmed that you cannot download/stream anything to Kindle Fire when traveling outside US.
10. Amazon says it will review every app in its Appstore for Fire compatibility, as part of an automated process. Rejected apps will include those that rely on a gyroscope, camera, WAN module, Bluetooth, microphone, GPS, or micro SD. Apps are also forbidden from using Google's Mobile Services (and in-app billing), which, if included, will have to be "gracefully" removed. In terms of actual content, Amazon has outlawed all apps that change the tablet's UI in any way (including theme- or wallpaper-based tools), as well as any that demand root access.
11. I'd recommend waiting for Nook Color 2 that is rumored to be released by Barnes & Noble shortly.


Does the Kindle Fire HD allow external memory to be used?
Q.

A. Kind of no if you mean memory, as it doesn't have an SD card lot. But you can get a hard drive to work with the Kindle Fire or Kindle Fire HD, here is a good discussion about it:
