Hello dryginstudios, The exe file name should be KindleDrivers.exe not FireKindleDrivers.exe. So, the text should read:" In your Android SDK directory, at \extras\amazon\kindle_fire_usb_driver, find KindleDrivers.exe and run." This will install the correct driver for new generation Fire devices. The information on the documentation has been corrected as well.
Hi Briana, I launched KindleDrivers.exe as suggested. I have no problems with my 3rd generation Kindle on Windows 7, with the device listed in the Device Manager as "Kindle Fire/Android Composite ADB Interface". However, ADB isn't able to connect to my 4th generation Kindle (I can connect with explorer, though). The device is listed in the device manager as "Other devices/ADB Interface" with an exclamation mark. Updating the drivers doesn't help, even if I browse to driver installation folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\
Amazon.com\Kindle Fire\Drivers" manually. My KindleDrivers.exe is the lasted available through the Android SDK, yet the drivers that it installs seems to date to 19 Sep 2013 so they are indeed more than a year old. Is there a more up-to-date version of the drivers? Thanks
