What formats can I check out and download for the Kindle?

A PDF document of these instructions with images is also available.

On the HCPL Digital Media Catalog, the only eBook format that will work on the standard Kindle is the "Kindle" format. If you have a Kindle Fire, you may also select the EPUB format. To find out how to read EPUB on the Kindle Fire, please see these instructions.

When searching for titles, you can limit your results to the Kindle format by selecting the word "Kindle" under the "Format" heading on the left hand side of the screen.

The available format information can also be found on the right hand side of the title display screen. You can access this by clicking on the book jacket.
You can also listen to "MP3" eAudio titles on the Kindle, but it is not the most user friendly experience.

The WMA format is not compatible with any Kindle at this time.
