Part two How to transfer .mobi eBooks from Kindle to iPad .mobi is another eBook format that Kindle supports. But by default, it is not compatible with iPad, iPad 2 and the new iPad. To transfer .mobi Kindle books to iPad, first, you should remove them from Kindle. Connect the Kindle with your computer with the USB cable. Double-click to open My Computer you will find an external drive, say Kindle drive. Open it and find the folder named as “Document” in the directory. From here, copy .mobi Kindle books and save them on your computer. From here you have two choices: 1. Transfer .mobi to Stanza for iPad to read. Of course, you have to download Stanza for iPad and Stanza for your computer beforehand. First, transfer these .mobi eBooks to “file sharing” section in Stanza for desktop and then go to “Get eBooks”>”Computer Sharing Books” on Stanza for iPad to sync .mobi to iPad. 2. Convert .mobi to iPas eBook format, EPUB. To convert MOBi to EPUB, you can use the freeware Calibre. See how to convert MOBI to EPUB on Calibre.
