Who can tolerate a dumb Kindle question?

mudlady_gwMarch 24, 2011

I have the Kindle 3 and I don't understand what the screen means that appears if I connect my Kindle to the computer via cable. The screen says:

If you want to read or shop on your Kindle while continuing to charge over USB, please keep the USB cable attached, but eject your Kindle from your computer.

I am at a total loss as to what this means. "My Computer" shows the content of the Kindle on the E drive--what should I do to eject? I do want to read while charging.

Highlight e-drive, right-click, select eject from the pop-up menu. HTH.

Wow!! Thank you Terry. I truly am a computerdyslexic, but I can eventually learn, after many false starts. Thank you for your patience.

Just an add on, you should be doing the same thing with any USB thumbdrives or any usb media storage...there should also be a little icon (has some green on it) down by the clock when you have a usb item plugged in. you can click on it and disable the usb unit plugged in...it should then tell you it is safe to remove
