unable to connect to device

This page: https://developer.amazon.com/sdk/fire/connect-adb.html doesn't seem to be up to date. First of all, my device shows up under 'Portable Devices' as 'Kindle', but not as 'Kindle Fire: Android Composite ADB Interface'. Second, the program 'Kindle Fire ADB drivers.exe' doesn't seem to exist. Only: 'KindleDrivers.exe'. So, when I do 'adb devices', I get nothing. And this command doesn't work: android update adb The android exe doesn't exist. So, is the page out of date, or am I missing something? Kevin

Hi Kevin, Thank you for your post. As you mentioned above, adb command doesn't work means please restart your adb by using below commands. adb kill-server adb start-server To connect your Kindle Fire to ADB, you must first enable ADB on your device. 1. On your device, go to Settings.
Note: This does not apply to Kindle Fire (1st Generation), which has ADB enabled by default. 2. Under Security, turn Enable ADB to On, and then click OK in the pop-up warning message.
Note: As a security precaution, we recommend turning Enable ADB to Off when you are not trying to connect to the device with ADB.

forget previous post. from SDK Manager add http://kindle-sdk.s3.amazonaws.com/addon.xml to Tools/User Defined Sites. then under Extras install Kindle Fire USB driver. This will add \extras\amazon\kindle_fire_usb_driver\KindleDrivers.exe Then carefully follow https://developer.amazon.com/sdk/fire/connect-adb.html Message was edited by: pkrusn
