When I tried to copy some stuff back to my Kindle, it got stuck on USB drive mode. I tried plugging in or out, but it still didn’t work.
Nothing worked. (Happen the same?)

Solution 1: Plug the Kindle Back Into the Computer and Eject It
First, connect your Kindle to the computer. Go to the computer, choose the Kindle drive, right-click, and press the eject button.
For Mac, open the “Finder” application, click on the Kindle under “Devices” on the left-hand sidebar, and press the eject button.
If that doesn’t work, try restarting it.
Solution 2: Soft Reset the Kindle
Here are the steps:
- Press and hold the power button for 15-20 seconds.
- Wait for the green light to flicker and release.
- Press the power button again to turn on your Kindle.
My problem was fixed after I followed these steps.
Still Facing a hard time? Try plugging in the Kindle. Leave it for 10-15 minutes on the computer. It should automatically detect the Kindle and reboot it.
Solution 3: Let the Battery Run Down for the Kindle to Power Off
Letting the battery of the Kindle run down can force it to power off and exit USB drive mode. Once the Kindle is powered down, you can charge it and power it back on without any issues.
To apply this solution, follow these steps:
- Leave your Kindle unplugged and with the screen on.
- Allow the battery to drain naturally.
- Once the Kindle powers off, charge it and power it back on.
SOLUTION 4: CONTACT AMAZON CUSTOMER SUPPORT
If you’re still having trouble, contact Amazon customer service for help. I saw many users getting free replacements in these types of cases. So, it is always worth a try!
