    Does Kindle HD 8 Require A Special Stylus?

    I have an Amazon Kindle HD 8 that has a "glass/plastic" protective screen. My finger works fine, but I can't get a stylus to work. I was using a plain plastic stylus. Does the HD 8 require a special "capacitance-like" stylus? Will the Splash Glider or similar stylus work with the protective cover? I used Notepad+ and Notes.

    Sorry, This is my first note and I should have made it a new entry. Thanks in advance for any answers you might have.

    I need some help. I purchased a BoxWave stylus from Amazon. Their ad stated the BoxWave worked with the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8. Only the rubber cushion end works. There is an off-on switch close to the rubber tip end. The pointed end of the stylus (which is what I need to write with) does not work on Notepad Plus and Notes.

    Can someone please recommend a pointed-end writing stylus that works with the Fire HD 8 tablet?
