    Cannot delete a file on my Kindle Fire from a Mac

    I recently copied some videos from my Mac to the Kindle with no problems. When I deleted the videos (from the video folder) via the File Finder on the Mac the video files disappeared; however, the disk space they took up was not freed up and now I have very little space to add a new files to.

    I have the 6.2.1 software running
    Can anyone help?

    I decided to restore my Kindle to factory defaults. After I did that, I realized that one way that would likely work is that if you have a file that's not in a supported format, instead of trying to delete it from your Mac, rename the file to a format that is recognized by the kindle. Then use whatever app is meant is for those files and delete it using the app. Now I haven't tried it myself but I bet it would work.

    Unfortunately it seems to be a common problem since I have it too..

    How to delete file if you have a Mac

    The only way I found to delete a file on a kindle if you have a mac is through the Kindle. Select the file on your kindle and either hold down or if it is a video select the edit button on the bottom of the kindle and delete. This doesn't mess with the FAT file system and allows you to attain free space for more video's or files.
