  3. I appreciate your email reviews of Kindle apps. However, formatting on the last several of them has been off, and the actual “email” is essentially hidden. (It’s as if the screen size is way too big, and you have to scroll to the middle somehow to stumble across the actual content.)

    Considering I am having no other problems with any other emails, I’m guessing this is something on your end. Can you check into it?

    I couldn’t find another way to alert you to this snag. Thanks for everything!

    • Thanks for the update Scott. WordPress changed their email format. It’s causing problems on other WordPress blog emails too. Trying to get a fix.

  4. How can I open Tips & For Kindle on my computer?

  5. I’m not sure if this is the right place for this. I have been trying to transfer notes from my kindle to my Mac. When I link the Kindle to the make, no folder named .active-content-data, or anything like that shows up.

    • The thing is that Amazon uses a folder named .active-content-data to store data for apps (their decision not ours to put the ‘.’ and make it hard for Mac users).

      Since Mac does not show folders starting with ‘.’ – it treats them as invisible/hidden folders, you’ll need a program called Houdini to reveal this folder.

      Rest of the steps are the exact same.

      I’m producing a step by step account below. Please let me know in case this doesn’t work. If you go to our website – you’ll see these instructions are there in the post. That (or sending me an email) is really the best option if you run into any problems with Notepad.

      First, from the post

      Please Note: When on Mac and transferring files you need to keep in mind:

      When you get the Kindle show up on the Mac, the .active-content-folder doesn’t show. This is because on Mac it’s considered a hidden file. So you have to use a workaround to see that folder –

      People are finding that using Houdini is easiest.

      After using Houdini the .active-content-data folder in the Kindle shows up and you can follow the remaining steps.


      Second, detailed instructions:

      ********** Detailed Directions

      When you plug your Kindle into your Mac you will se the Kindle as a disk drive. Click on that.

      The folder you are looking for is

      Since Mac doesn’t show files starting with a ‘.’ you will have to get Houdini and make the folder visible (or just enter it and proceed).

      Everything else applies from here

      Plug the USB cable into both your Kindle and the computer.

      2. The Kindle should shift into USB Drive Mode.

      3. Your computer should open a prompt asking you which action you would like to take. Select ‘Open folder to view files using Windows Explorer’. Click OK.

      4. Your computer should open Windows Explorer to the root of the drive assigned to your Kindle (this may be different depending upon your computer setup).

      5. Double click on the ‘.active-content-data’ folder. THIS IS WHERE YOU NEED HOUDINI ON MAC

      6. Look for the subfolder named ‘8a5982e82ae68fb201 2bc688405e0026’ and open this folder. (It is easiest to just look for the folder name ending in e0026).

      7. Choose the ‘work’ subfolder.

      8. Your notes are stored in the ‘user’ subfolder.

      9. If your Kindle is the D: drive on your computer, the path/folder will be – D:\.active-content-data\8a5982e82ae68fb2012bc688405e0026\work\user. *See image below

      11. Right click and select Copy (or Cut – if you want to permanently move them off your Kindle).

      12. Navigate to the desired folder on your computer where you want to transfer the notes.

      13. Right click and select Paste.
