Kindle can't open books.

Post by aki42 » Thu Nov 12, 2020 8:39 am

Hello.
I have troubled with amazon kindle.
Kindle can't open books but says
"The book could not be opened. Please remove the book from your device and redownload it."

I removed books and redownloaded some times, but can't open the books.

I installed kindle from winetricks on my Manjaro linux.
And the version number is 1.16.0 (44025) .

Is there anyone who can open books on kindle?

Thanks in advance.

Works fine here, though I have Kindle 1.17.1. I vaguely remember Amazon retiring old versions at some point (they won't even work on Windows), but I can't remember what the cutoff version was. It's possible that's the problem--I do remember the error message didn't give a clue what was really wrong.

Thanks for your comment.

I tried to upgrade to 1.17 but couldn't.
During the installation further update will be prompted.
So I can't upgrade to 1.17.

And also after releasing sync, I can't login to my amazon account.

Thanks anyway.
