Frequently Asked Questions on Kindle Bookmarks

Q2: How to transfer bookmarks between kindles?
For kindle books purchased from Amazon website, you just need to download the kindle books and the bookmarks will automatically sync. If not, please turn on the Device Synchronization under Preference tab of Manage Your Content and Devices.
For sideloading books, connect the old Kindle to the computer over USB. Each ebook has another folder with the same name. If you open it, you will see there are many files with the same name but with different extension. Copy them to the new Kindle, and your notes, highlights, and bookmarks will be transferred to your new Kindle. Also, there is a folder named: My Clippings.sdr which contains all your notes. Please also copy this one to ensure your notes have been transferred successfully.
