I’d like to report it because the inquiry may increase.
The basic policy of Kindle Fire seems to use without PC because the cable for connecting to a PC is not included. If a user would like to connect it to the PC, he/she needs to buy the cable.
According to the technical details in Amazon Kindle Fire page, the USB cable with micro-B connector is used.
* Please pay attention because this type differs from the cable for the Digital Camera (mini-B).
Please read the following sites about the cable.
- Amazon: AmazonBasics USB Cable – 2.0 A Male to Micro B (6 Feet / 1.8 Meters)
- Amazon Japan: Amazonベーシック USB 2.0 (A) オス – Micro B ケーブル (1.8m)
