04.16.14 Playing Music on Your Kindle

Since I posted about free music from Amazon a little over a year ago, I’ve had a lot of emailed questions regarding it – primarily, what was that link again?  So, here is a little bit of a repeat (don’t worry, a new tip or book post will be here again soon).

There are also several thousand MP3 songs for free from the Amazon Kindle store: yes, you can play songs on most of the models – but not all – of the e-Ink Kindle as well as the Kindle Fire; as I type up this post this morning, there are exactly 45,321 free songs you can download from Amazon. Here’s a link you probably want to bookmark so you can check those out throughout the year:

 

http://smarturl.it/mp3

 

I’m 100% certain your friends and family would appreciate your sharing that link with them, also; I have bookmarked the link in my computer’s web browser and check it out periodically. You may also need to re-sort the list periodically from “low to high” or in any of the other choices available in the top right-hand corner of this Amazon web page as sometimes it just randomly shows titles.

If you’re a Kindle Fire owner, hopefully you know how to listen to music on your Kindle Fire.  If not, well, I will address that another day in a different post!

“Regular” e-Ink Kindle users shouldn’t feel left out, as many of these Kindles can play music, also (alas, the $79 Kindle does not as an example).

Your Kindle can also play mp3 songs: you can listen to it via the Kindle’s speakers or insert your favorite headphones / earbuds into the Kindle and listen away.

I’ve posted about how to listen to music on your Kindle, and it is one of the most popular “tips” I have on the blog. If you’re familiar with the process, you can stop reading now. However, if you are not or need a refresher on how to do it, read on!

In addition to having your Kindle read to your with the test-to-speech option enabled, you can also listen to music. I don’t know about streaming music over the Internet – I haven’t personally tried it but who knows, it could happen if you had a real good connection – but I am talking about your favorite music in MP3 format. At this time, pending a future software upgrade, the Kindle only supports MP3’s for playback.

Here are some of the basics for the non-Kindle Fire owners:

Music Location:

You will need to transfer your MP3 files over to your Kindle using the USB cord via your computer. If you haven’t changed the directory structure of your Kindle, you will see three folders: Audible, Documents, and Music. You want to put your MP3 files in the “Music” folder (I know some of you are saying “duh” right now, but some of you are not!).

If you want to organize your music by artist, for example making a folder for “Van Halen” and another for “George Strait,” you can make those folders. However, the Kindle does not allow (pending a software upgrade) you to navigate via the folders as you are selecting songs.

Playback:

From the Home screen, select Menu, then Experimental, then Play MP3. If you want to listen to the music while you are reading, just click the “Home” key and navigate to your book and start reading.

If you want to stop the music, just press the “ALT” and spacebar keys at the same time; the same is true if you want to start playing music again. If you’re tired of the song you’re listening to, just press the “F” key to move to the next song.

Speakers:

While you can listen to your music with the built-in speakers, they sound good to me for what I am using it for – mild background music while I read. However, if you like to have your music a little louder than other people prefer, or maybe traveling on a plane and don’t want to disturb the person 1.7 inches to your immediate left you can plug in headphones (click here or type in http://smarturl.it/kindlebuds into your web browser for some options from the Kindle store). Headphones can be plugged into the audio jack located just to the side of your of your Kindle.

And who needs an iPod these days when you have your Kindle?

Hope that helps!

Michael

Award Winning Author Lee Jackson Brings Heat To The Cold War! When the darkness of night is your only camouflage, you learn to Curse the Moon.
 

Critically Acclaimed

“Riveting. Couldn’t put it down.” Lieutenant-General Ricky Lynch (Retired), former Commanding General, 3rd Infantry Division during the Surge in Iraq.

“Curse the Moon is a powerful read with attention to the details of atmosphere and setting.” Diane Donovan, MidwestBookReview

“Atcho is at his best when he’s being Atcho–taking names and kicking ass. Highly enjoyable when in all-out-action mode…” Kirkus Reviews

A Story Of Tenacity And Courage

The Cold War. A backdrop to betrayal. A playground to power. He is called Atcho. Cuban-born. West Point Graduate. To save his daughter, he must be a sleeper agent to men he’d rather kill!

Atcho’s rise opens doors into US National Defense even as a seemingly omniscient KGB officer holds unflinching sway over his actions. His public life clashes with secrets that only he and his tormentor share, isolating him in a world of intrigue among people whom he is determined to protect.

“Lee Jackson writes in the style of the early and notable Robert Ludlum or Ken Follett. The story is action-packed, riveting, adrenaline-pumping reading that is sure to make this a best-seller.

THE VAMPIRE WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO
Three years ago, high school student Veronica Fortune witnessed the brutal murder of her parents. Now armed and dangerous, she sets out to hunt down the very thing that destroyed her life. That is, until she disappears. Spinoza is a private investigator who specializes in finding the missing. He’s good at what he does. Damn good. But he’s also a recovering alcoholic and a royal mess. Hired to find Veronica, Spinoza won’t let his personal demons—or demons of any kind—get in the way of finding the truth about the missing girl. Now following a bizarre set of clues that leads him into stranger and stranger territory, Spinoza is about to come face-to-face with something legendary…and something hungry for blood.
