How to Upload Music on to Your Kindle

Uploading music to your Kindle is quick and easy, and what could possibly be more relaxing than having your favorite music to listen to while you read? All it takes is a few simple steps and you’ll have background music at the tip of your finger before you even know it.

Connect your Kindle to your computer and when it prompts you to open it’s file, be sure to do so. Next, open the music file on your computer, and select which songs you would like to add to your Kindle.


The important thing to remember when selecting the music for your Kindle, is to load the songs on your Kindle in the order that you would like to listen to them. Music on the Kindle is still being developed, and at this time there is no way to view your list of songs or select a specific song from your Kindle. You can skip songs if you would like, but that is as far as selection options go.


Once you have transferred all of the songs you would like to upload, on your Kindle press the “Menu” button and use the four-way button to move down to “Experimental”. Select “Play Music” under the Play MP3 option. You will hear the music begin to play.

The volume control is located at the bottom of your Kindle at the left. You can hold down the “ALT” key and press the spacebar to stop or play, and you can use the “F” key to skip to the next track.

That’s all there is to it! Happy reading!
