    How do I Transfer Photos from Win 10 on my Computer to a Tablet?


    Hi

    How do I transfer photos from my Win 10 Computer to an Amazon Fire 7in Tablet

    Just wondering if I need an App?

    My Tablet is connected to my Computer (Hard Wired) through the same USB lead used for Charging but its not showing up in 'This Computer' as an external Hard Drive

    Are you supposed to 'Cast the photo' from the Computer to the Tablet?

    Not sure how you do any of this, help needed please.

    Assuming that you have the Amazon Fire HD 7, you should be able to plug it into your PC and copy over files (including pictures) over to it.

    But if you aren't seeing it in This PC, then try these troubleshooting steps: Amazon.com Help: Kindle Fire Isn't Recognized by Computer

    They appear a little outdated (there are links for XP), but I'll add some tips here.

    First of all, ignore the part about Windows Media Player. You already have it.

    If the article doesn't help, look in Device Manager while the tablet is plugged in, find the Kindle Fire, right click it, click Remove, unplug the tablet and reconnect it. It should reinstall drivers.

    Or install the drivers manually: https://s3.amazonaws.com/android-sdk-manager/redist/kindle_fire_usb_driver.zip


    Try different usb cables and computers, too.

    Make sure that your tablet is on while connecting it.

    Hi Thanks for replying

    I've had the Tablet Connected to the PC for about an hour for charging (everything seems to use the same lead) and no sign of the Tablet installing in 'This Computer' but when I changed the lead like you said, then it all started working.

    So Many Thanks for your help.
