Anyone who gets the $49 Fire Tablet needs extra memory - this micro SD is perfect
By The Technologist
Works perfectly in my Dad's new Fire tablet. Now he has enough memory to store his media. Anyone who buys the $49 Fire tablet will need extra memory, and this SD card is a perfect match. All you need to do is insert the SD card into the slot on the tablet instantly recognizes it, there is no formatting needed.

The Kindle Fire manual for MicroSD cards exists (if you need it)
By Taylor Rand
The slot for the MicroSD card is on the upper right side of the device; covered by a sliding shield you push aside gently with a fingernail. It's similar to the shield covering many cellphone power outlets. Actual insertion should be gently done (never force card) by placing the metallic stripes on the card inside, face down and completing with a small push.
There is a manual on the Fire: Go to Settings, find Help, Search for "Insert and Manage MicroSD card" The manual has detailed illustrations and instructions on installation and use of the MicroSD card.
The available memory is slightly less than the advertised memory; that's usually the case with memory cards for various reasons.
One thing I was disappointed (well, two, if I count the lack of a tiny plastic case for the MicroSD card when it's not in the Kindle. This used to be almost standard) discovering I couldn't directly download my Kindle books or my Audible audio books directly to the card. For me, with the Fire's limited data storage and my 30Gb plus audiobook collection, this is a big drawback.
The whole point of the MicroSD card was to enable me to store most of my audio books (or a great many) on the device for when Internet access was unavailable - which is often given my occupation and travel. I suspect though, I will be able to transfer via usb cable.

Easy to install in the Kindle Fire 8
By Walker Shaw
Got it today for my Kindle Fire 8. It was delayed by a couple of days from getting my new Fire 8. The previous review said not instructions on how to install it. True. But please, I googled "how to install the SD memory in my Fire 8" and quickly got the answer with pictures. There is a little plastic plug over the opening. Use you finger nail to gently lift and push to the side. Hold the Kindle with the on-off switch at the top, SD card hole on the right top edge. Insert the SD card with the indent facing up. Gently click it into place. Then pull the little plastic cover back over the hole and snug it down. The Kindle knows what just happened and walks you though the options for using the card. Greatly expands the storage for movies, pictures and other large files. Really easy to install. Highly recommended.
