Reason for Difficulties in Connecting Your Kindle to PC

There are two types of micro USB cable that people use for connection, namely;

  • Regular(data) cables which explore all four available wires and carry both power and data
  • And also, Charge-only cables; which use only two wires for charging function only

Using the later (charge-only cables) for any form of connectivity can prove to be difficult because they are only meant for providing power only, and it can malfunction if you try to use it for a connection between two gadgets such as Kindle and Windows PC
