Hi everyone,

This isn't really a question but rather a solution to what I had to look for, for a long time.

I have a Dell Laptop and for some reason I couldn't connect my Kindle Fire HD. So after Looking around (for a very long time) I found a way of fixing it.


In my case it would install all drivers except the MTP driver. It would just show me MTP with a yellow triangle and an exclamation mark inside.

Like so:

I did the following to fix it:

1. Open Device Manager

2. Right click "MTP" and press on "Properties"

The "MTP Properties" window should open.

3. Go to the driver tab and press "Update Driver".

Press "Next" when done.

8. A warning will show up, just press "Yes".

Close all windows and go to "Computer".

10. Your Kindle should now show up on "Computer".
