    I have the same problem with my new Xmas HD 8 tablet (8th gen). With my old Fire 7 tablet I could connect via the charging cable to my computer and download or manage files on my micro SD card.

    I found the solution at
    https://www.amazonforum.com/forums/

    Turn on the HD8, plug into your computer, swipe from the top and select "USB charging this device".

    Various options come up, one of which is the ability to transfer files.
