Hi,
I have a Kindle Fire HD, and use it mainly for Apps & Books.

However I'm going on holiday, and want to add some music. I have done this before with only one album, a few years ago (successfully)

I have connected the Kindle to the PC, and copied the MP3 tracks into Individual folders. I have added the front cover artwork.

On disconnecting the Kindle from the PC, all the artwork has copied into "Pictures", but each time I select MUSIC from the top scrolling menu, I get nothing, except the carousel again.

What have I not done, or what do I need to do to find the music files?

Thanks

Are you sure they're in mp3 format? Did you rip the music from your own CDs? Did you use Windows Media Player to do it? Have you tried restarting your Fire?

I really can't remember what I rilled them with, but probably media player.
Restarting my Fire now...It has not made any difference, except the pause between me pressing "Music" and the Carousel appearing is a bit longer. :(
Thanks

Then I can only suggest you speak to Customer Services. I'm only aware of problems if CDs have been ripped to .wma format, which is the default format used by Windows Media Player.
