How to Put DVD Movies to Amazon Kindle Fire, Fire HD and Kindle Fire HDX?

We share this tutorial to take your DVDs from home and add them to your computer then put these DVDs to your Kindle Fire HD/Fire HDX and make it usable in FreeTime Unlimited.

Question: How do I put downloaded DVD movies on to my Kindle Fire HD?

Hi all, I recently got a Kindle Fire HD for a birthday gift, however I am unsure how to transfer DVD movies off my laptop onto it. I have tried transferring directly through a USB port and have also tried through the cloud. I don’t know whether the files are in the wrong format and may need converting, if that is the case, could anyone recommend any suitable software? Also, any general advice with regards to maximising my Kindle would be much appreciated, thanks.

If you want your Kindle to play the DVD movie files directly however you’ll have to convert DVD to .mp4 or you can download aVia Player from the Amazon App Store. It will play most any file.

Then go to your Kindle Fire HD via your computer and create a “movies” folder so you could keep track of them easily.

As for general advice, I would download ES File Manager so that you’ll have access to all your files without needing your computer every time. I would also install App Cache Cleaner and set it to “run at startup” and run every four hours or so, you’d be shocked how much that helps out in keeping your Kindle Fire HD running smoothly.

This is the written steps and url’s that will guide you through this process

1. Add ES3 explorer to Kindle Fire HD. If you download from this website the ES3 file explorer will be in your Amazon Cloud on your Kindle Fire HD/Fire HDX.

2. Add camera/video program to Kindle Fire HD. This is .99 cents or your welcome to find any free camera but I am unfamiliar with others. The camera program will be in your Amazon Cloud on your Kindle Fire HD if you download from this link.

3. Add the Camera app to your FreeTime Unlimited if your doing this for your child. Go to manage content and subscriptions and then select all to find your camera app inside FreeTime Unlimited parental controls.

4. Download a DVD Ripper if you don’t have one. This link is for a Free DVD Ripper but takes a little more time then a paid version like Aimersoft DVD Ripper with no adware, spyware, or viruses that I like to use. I make no commission off of these they are just the programs I use.

    It is one of the most stable as well as powerful software available in the market for removing all the protections which is already known to the users.

    Even though my DVD is copy protected by region code, CSS, Aimersoft DVD Ripper can quickly read DVD information and finish DVD ripping as I like. Ignore reading error helps to restore corrupted files at greatest degree.

    Works pretty well!
    I have several foreign discs, but my DVD player does not play them. However, when I try Aimersoft DVD Ripper to convert them on to my computer as MP4 files, they play OK with my Kindle Fire HD and other media players. Later I reburn them to my discs, they become free region or what I call multi-region code discs. This is amazing that I can play them on my DVD player.
