How to Download Kindle Books on Kindle Cloud Reader

Posted by on .

Important Notice

Amazon has just removed downloading feature for kindle cloud reader for security reasons. So KCR Converter can't convert kindle books from now on. Here we offer some alternative workaround for you to convert Kindle books.

For Windows users, we suggest you follow this guide to use epubor ultimate to convert kindle books.

For Mac users:

1. If you have a Kindle e ink device, then you can use epubor ultimate to convert kindle books with the help of Kindle e ink device.

2. If you don't have a Kindle e ink device, and your macOS is below than 10.15 Catalina, you can still use epubor ultimate to convert kindle books by downgrading Kindle for Mac to an older version(below version 1.23). However, if you don't have a Kindle e ink device, and your macOS is 10.15 Catalina or higher, there's no tool on the market that can help you convert Kindle books.

Kindle Cloud Reader is a very useful web app that allows you to read Kindle ebooks instantly in any compatible web browser - no Kindle device or app required. Recently, Amazon has launched a new version Kindle Cloud Reader which has removed the Cloud and Downloaded tabs. Right-click option to Download & Pin Kindle books on Kindle Cloud Reader is also gone. Does this mean that offline reading is not available anymore? The answer is No. Here's the new way to download Kindle books on Kindle Cloud Reader.

Amazon has corrected this problem as well. No download is possible at all from Kindle Cloud Reader now, making epubor KCR obsolete and worthless. Please stop marketing this product and research DRM removal on the new mac Catalina. Don't scam the public, support your products.

Morning

I can confirm that KCR cannot find identify the books downloaded onto my MacBook, thus I cannot remove the DRM. I can happily give you TeamViewer access to see for yourself.

I thought the same too, but it's not true. It's just different from before , and what the help center is telling u is right. Only the AUTO downloaded books are recognized by KCR, leave them opened a few minutes  and after the download ( now automatic) KCR will recognise th all. Regards

The CloudReader download doesn't work for me either (on a Windows 10 PC), but I found that I can download the books to any registered device from the Amazon 'Manage Your Content and Devices' web page.

I was stupid enough to trust various reviews about Epubor and to buy a license for this product.

BEWARE THAT THIS PIECE OF SOFTWARE IS UNUSABLE AS EBOOKS ARE NO LONGER DOWNLOADED.

Hello, I was very happy with this product until Amazon made the update. Like others I can no get the download to start therefore I can not use the program i paid for.

Can we have some detail why the download does not work for some. Is there something in Amazon or in our browser we need to change. As the software author be nice if you did some testing and shared.

Thanks in advance.

Hello, this is disappointing news. In place of a refund can you extend to me a licences for the ultimate tool? Will this find ebooks I download to the Amazon PC eReader?

Side note your coding and is bad. Look at you email link:

on our page: /www

You are inserting a "/" in beginning of the URL and it does not work. Some people may not see this and are frustrated they can no see you case uploads.

I first encountered this problem on July 10. Books show as 100% downloaded but right-click on the book does not bring up the Open book/Remove book options. At that time I was on Kindle 1.28 for Mac. I updated to Kindle 1.29 on July 14.

I have been in contact with epubor support on this issue but they have not provided a resolution as of today.

If there is a downloading bar, then that means your kindle cloud reader books can be downloaded successfully. Just leave the book open for a few minutes. The downloading process is affected by the internet connection.
Then come back to see whether the "Open book" and "Remove book" options appear.
Also, please ensure you are using the latest version of KCR converter>>https://www.epubor.com/kcr-converter.html
Any more problem, please feel free to contact us via support@epubor.com

Hello, as i said no download starts and I am asking your the software developer to advise what the best setting for Amazon should be and if there is any configuration needed in a browser.

People like me paid for a product that I can no longer use. I think you owe the community some investigation as to why the download does not start.

Please stop repeating the instructions that we have all read.
Much appreciated.

You have to open the plugin page, I'm trying to link the page but this system recognise the link as spam..so contact me in private and I'll hand it to u

Open the book and LET TI DOWNLOAD automatically, only after that Kcr will recognise the books.
It works on Mojave as of today 30th July 2020.

reply

Yes, I agree. I have just tried and it's true, you have to download it, let it for a little while and then KCR recognizes it and it works!!!

Thank you for sharing your experience. Yes, the key point is keep the book open for a while until the book has been downloaded completely. Then click on "Refresh" button and the book will appear in KCR Converter.

I also could not use the program because the download percentage did not appear.  I accessed "leerdotamazondotes" but I was able to solve it and now it works correctly by downloading the google chrome web Store kindle-cloud-reader
It is not an ideal solution, but it works for me at least.

I have found if the book does not start down loading automatically all you need to do is place the pointer on the bar at the bottom move the bar anywhere past the first page (for some reason that helps) then right click several times untill the down load begins, sometimes works better then other times but it seems to always kick the down load into running.

thank you for this excellent product :)

Audible has evidently recently changed their format on their downloads. One can no longer convert their old aax files to mps and then install them to a flash drive for use in our cars. Is there some way that this can still be done with their new format?
reply
07/31/2020 11:59:47
Thank you for asking.
Epubor Audible Converter can help you convert the audible old format (aa) and the new format (aax) to drm-free mp3 and then you can transfer them to your car.

I was unable to convert downloaded books until I upgraded to the most recent version (1.0.1.200). If you have an older version, try downloading from the free trial page and installing again. This fixed the issue for me.

There is no way for downloading the Books in Amazon cloud. By testing it in your way the download status does not appear and there is no sync to epubor. I just have the status bar showing me on which page I was last.

So did I buy the software just for converting three books before Amazon changed it way in the cloud reader? Before the changing ebupor works well.
