    Hi all,

    I tried to purchase a game (Tropix) through amazon.com, from my Kindle fire, but it said "this app does not support digital downloads... view and purchase from your computer".

    To me, that meant I could purchase the game on my laptop/PC and then transfer the files to my Kindle Fire. I can find the game file on my laptop but how do I transfer (where to?) the file on my Fire?

    It appears that that game is not an Android app. You should be able to go through the Amazon app store on your Fire to find apps. That game is for a Nintendo DS, as best I can determine.

    I have three versions of the game - DS, CD-Rom and the Digital download. I can see it under Digital downloads but I can't do anything with it from my Kindle. I'm bummed as I already had purchased it. :)

    See if you can get a refund from Amazon. Explain your confusion. Can't hurt.

    You should be able to download and play it on a windows PC but not on the fire. If you don't want to play it on the PC then send email to Amazon they are usually pretty good at customer service.

    In the future be sure to check out the amazon app store for games for the kindle Amazon.com: Appstore for Android you should also be able to access it by choosing apps from your kindle's home screen and clicking store.

    Welcome to AF by the way! :D
