Content Opening and Editing MBP1 Files/Download Notes Into Kindle

Hi. Is there a way for me to be able to edit the mbp1 files (aka the annotations and highlights) on PC. I tried opening it using Notepad++ but it gave me gibberish. Is there a way to edit notes on PC and then send it to Kindle and highlight it? I know that if I edit the myclippings.txt it won't show as the actual notes are saved in the sdr folders via the mbp1 file which is why I'm looking for a method to edit the mbp1 and hopefully get custom notes imported and shown on my kindle.

I'm considering deleting the User Guides (I have 2, 7th and 8th generation) and some of the Dictionaries from Manage my Content and Devices on my Amazon Account. If I do this, will I ever be able to get these dictionaries and user guides back?

Text going grey

The text on my kindle is black for about one second and then goes grey. This has happened twice now over a period of about a month. I have read other books in-between these two that have stayed black. Any ideas? Thanks for any responses.

Good Times & Great Guides at the 2020 Safari Club International (SCI) Convention

Opinion Safari Club International Convention USA – -( This past week the SCI convention was held in Reno, which on a side note will move its venue back to Vegas in 2021. It is a fun event to hit up and it is a lot more relaxed and fun to attend than the SHOT. Or maybe the SHOT is more stressful since I’m running from before daylight until way after dark to hit many breakfasts (thank you AmmoLand News), the show and then many times 3-4 dinners/happy hour meetings after the show...

Jailbreak 0.13.N_dxg fails on Kindle DX 2.5.8

I thought I had this working previously so I may have lingering badness on my Kindle. I did a factory defaults reset, uninstall, install, both with ;debugon and then a ;dm after to get logs. The install fails with "not successful" and it seems the pertinent bits of the log are these. I couldn't find any other reference to this /etc/prettyversion.txt patch failure so am posting here with the full log attached. Thanks for any help you can give. Attached F...

Troubleshooting Kindle Keyboard still dead after new battery

Hi all, I've done a search and tried many of the suggestions to no avail, so figured it was worth a post to see if there is anything I missed. Kindle Keyboard was showing the "Empty Battery" screen and wouldn't turn on no matter what I tried so I got a new battery from Ebay and installed today. Still showing the "Empty Battery" screen after several hours of charging. I have tried: 15 second reset (screen briefly goes blank, then back to Empty Battery) 40 second reset (screen briefly goes b...

Better ways to send plain text to kindle other than email?

Hello, I just bought my first ever Kindle, which is a PW4. I do not often buy books but I would like to use the Kindle to read big chunk of text on websites which is more comfortable in eInk than computer screen. I know and I have tested the email to Kindle feature, which I can send specific format of files to amazon and it will convert to a format readable by kindle. This solves most of my problem. But I also want to easily pass the stuff I wrote on my note taking app, i.e. Google Keep, to ...

Amazon is monitoring....

I usually yawn my way through the big brother/paranoia articles but this shocked me. And it is from a BBC news report called How Bezos built his data machine The author used a freedom of information request for all that Amazon have on him... "One spreadsheet actually triggers a warning message saying it is too big for my software to handle. It contains details of the 83,657 Kindle interactions I’ve had since 2018, including the exact time of day for each tap. An associated document divides up m...

5.11 Tactical ABR PRO Pant and Why I Love Rip-Stop Fabric

5.11 Tactical ABR PRO Pant Idaho – -( I’ve noticed over time that sportsmen are observant. Here’s what I mean by that. They notice what works well in other factions of their lives and adapt it to their outdoor world. Or maybe they just happen to notice gear used in another field that would work in their outdoor world. All you have to do is to think about it for a second and you’ll realize that what I’m saying is true. To my understanding some of the employees at Swab-Its! were h...

Voyage to Oasis 2019 book transfer.

I finally made the jump to a larger e-reader. I was very much leaning towards the Kobo Forma with its larger screen, but it seemed chunky. The final swing to Oasis 2019 was fonts, kindle won hands down. So I am all excited to start using my new toy. I load all the books using calibre. I know I can just do a copy and paste on my computer but I want to preserve all my collections. I dread the thought of 100's of books outside of their collections. After all, that is it possible to transfer all ...

Time for Some Nostalgic Knife Sharpening!? ~ VIDEO

Carborundum Knife Sharpening Whetstones Idaho – -( I’ve written a million knife-related articles and taught a bunch of Knife Sharpening/Choosing The Proper Knife seminars. In fact, as I type this article, I’m on a plane headed to the 2020 Dallas Safari Club Conv. & Expo to conduct such a seminar. I’ll conduct three at the SHOT and in Feb. a  Knife Seminar at SCI in Reno. But I thought it’d be fun to write an Old School knife sharpening article. I’ve never done that before. I gu...

Docs/non-Amazon ebooks not syncing

Hi all! I am having trouble with my non-Amazon ebooks, which work fine on my Kindle but aren't showing up anywhere else. I'd like to access my annotations and sync progress, etc. I've found a few threads on here about similar problems - but the solutions all start with going to 'Manage Your Content and Devices' on the Amazon site, and finding the ebooks listed under Docs there. Mine are not even showing up there - the site tells me 'No Items Found' when I click to look at Docs on my Kindle. A...

Kindle 11th Gen: Rumours, Speculation, and Discussion

The latest flagship reader from Amazon, the Oasis 3, has an identical body to the 2017 model. Thus, the metal, asymmetrical 7" design will be three years old in 2020. I feel that Amazon and Kobo have been following each others' leads in terms of the implementation of features, with Kobo following Amazon in the shape of devices, while Amazon tried to keep up with Kobo with lighting colour temperature, and larger screen sizes. What Amazon could do in 2020/2021:larger screen: I would love this, but...

Images for Kindle devices

What's the best format for images in Kindle devices? My images at present are in transparent PNGs, but that produces black backgrounds within Kindle Previewer, so I'm guessing that Kindle doesn't like transparency. Also, what sizes are recommended. I see in the Amazon Kindle guide very large sizes for modern devices, but what's the best rule of thumb? Is there any difference for epub devices (not Kindle)? I have tried to search for answers to this in the threads, but can't come up with anyth...

Can we run Function mode in Search & replace during the conversion process?

I came across an issue where if I had a list like this:First item Second Item Third Item after it's converted to MOBI in Calibre it's transformed to this: First item Second Item Third Item I realized that this is an issue with the Kindle and not the MOBI itself (I'm using MOBI and not AZW3 so that I can upload to Amazon Kindle and sync across devices).

to those of you with Oasis 3, question about warm light

I feel that the warm light really starting to show itself around the 14-15 mark on the "warmth" scale, and everything less is just different shades of grey and it feels pretty pointless to me, is your oasis the same? Also, i feel like the maximum (24) warmth lvl could have been stronger? how about you? it's just a strong yellow and i'm getting used to it so fast i feel like i would up it by another number or two if i could ! can you check your oasis? thanks :o

Kindle memory purgeable

I connected my old Oasis to my Macbook for charging, and went to look at how much memory is available. It says that the capacity is 2.97GB, but that 3.37GB available, next to which, in brackets is says (3.37BG purgeable). I'm wondering if I can do something to free up this space, if indeed it exists?
