    Hi
    I have the 16GB kindle fire HD, I tried to pop some movies onto the thing , one works one doesn't. Both files appear in the "personal video" folder and not the "movies folder" where i dragged them to. Neither appears in the carousel. What have i done wrong.

    Both these files work on my PC and as stand alone DVD;s

    What player are you using? I use the VLC app --so far plays anything I have tried.

    My movies (transferred from my PC) are in the Movies folder where I put them.

    hi
    thanks
    I wrongly assumed that they would be played directly by the device. I can see them in the " movies" folder when connected to the pc but with kindle in hand had to go to "device/storage/personal videos"
    tp fiond them, is this right

    As I said my movies are "in hand" in the Movies folder, which is where I dragged and dropped them to from PC. To access I use ES File Explorer app from which I open "Movies" folder.
    I then select film to play and select "open with" VLC. Then plays (from start or last viewed).
