Don't try to download something onto more devices than it is licensed for.
As that is usually 6, you may need to revisit your life organisation priorities.
Why do you you want something on more than 6 devices? Discuss!

Due to crashes some folk have managed to have 6 Kindle apps on one Android.

Deregister the lot and reregister is the simplest course.

Check with Manage Your Kindle / Manage Your Devices & Apps.

Forgot we are restricted to 6 devices. I have Laptop, iPhone, Android Smartphone, Kindle Keyboard, Kindle Paperwhite & Samsung Galaxy Tablet. Have Kindle app on all but use Paperwhite 99.9% of the time for reading. I download everything to my KK but have a few books on each device & browse my library on all. Just love my 'toys' !!

You can have as many devices as you like. The usual restriction is only able to download on 6 at the same time.

I have a ebook I can only download on to three kindles - of all things it is a first aid manual. Just got to make sure people only have accidents when I have one of the three Kindles with me,

Yes, you can have as many Kindles/apps registered to your Amazon account as you want. It is just some publishers only let you have licences for 6 books.

Thank you both so much for clarifying above.

Sorry, could you ask your question in a different way since you make no sense currently

You will have to ask the author or the publisher... Only they know why.

When a book is self published the author decides whether DRM is imposed or not. If they choose no DRM then, as far as I am aware the book can loaded onto unlimited devices.

I do understand but by my reckoning I have a book, that I use regularly as a reference book downloaded on max 4 devices and it has now been removed from a devide where it has been for AGES! What to do?

In reply to an earlier post on 12 Sep 2014, 21:46:47 BST
Go to YOUR ACCOUNT / MANAGE YOUR DEVICES - select DEVICES and see how many devices you actually have registered to the account.

Any ghost? If so de-register them.

Then consider deleting the book of the devices that don't need it.

If it is a single copy book that can only go on one device, buy more copies.

Kinda simple.

In reply to an earlier post on 12 Sep 2014, 22:14:21 BST
Only you can remove books from a device. Therefore, you have removed it.

How do you de register previous iPhones from the account? I only have one iPhone now and I want to delete the rest of the other ones, help?
