    You can either transfer the music files from your computer via USB cable or upload the files to the Cloud Player and then download or stream them from the Cloud.

  2. Doreen says:

    This may not be relevant, but mp4 is listed as a supported file type on the Fire product page.

  3. T. E. Maddox says:

    I would assume DRM protected files from Apple will not play on the Fire out of the box.

  4. Roy Denney says:

    What about DRM protected content and digital copies of movies I received with blu-rays that I downloaded via iTunes?

    Is the Kindle Fire compatable with iTunes and if so, can you sync up your iPhone using the Kindle Fire??
