Hi guys. I'm new here so hopefully someone will take pity on me and help me out!

I have an Arnova 7 G2 tablet, on which I have successfully sideloaded the android market, gmail etc, and was in the process of trying to get the kindle app to work. After much googling I have managed to get FBReader to work, however have had no such luck with kindle. I have been moving the book files around into various different folders on the tablet but the kindle app just doesn't "see" them.

The other strange thing is that I have downloaded a couple of free books from amazon just to see where they were stored on the tablet but I can't find anything stored anywhere!

I have tried saving books in (amongst other places) \sdcard\kindle, \sdcard\Books, \Android\data\com.amazon.kindle\files and none of these allow the kindle to see the books I have downloaded.

Does anyone have any ideas? Not yet ready to root the tablet as I don't fully understand the process yet so hopefully that isn't required.

Are you signed in to your Amazon account? All of my books are stored in the sd/kindle file and I see then fine. I am rooted but it shouldn't matter.

Before you go to much trouble, please try to read a book on the Kindle App. I returned my Arnova 8 G2 for many reasons and one of the reasons was that I never could get the Kindle App and the Arnova to work together. The top line of each page was cut off by the Arnova. This was several months ago and I could not get a response to the problem from Arnova Customer service. My other tablets never had this problem. Just a heads-up before you go to much trouble.

I am running a Finless custom Rom and Kindle runs perfect. This Rom has easily doubled the value of this tablet. Also, there are transparent task bars for your device if you root.
