Paperwhite 2 won't mount as USB drive on MacBook
« on: March 27, 2018, 09:23:42 AM »
I have a Paperwhite 2 and a MacBook Pro running High Sierra. A couple of months ago my Paperwhite stopped mounting as a USB drive. I have tried multiple cables; both USB ports; and, tried plugging the cable in both directly and into a powered hub. Sometimes it works. Most of the time it does not. I am pretty sure it is a MacBook issue as it connected to another MacBook the other day on the first try. Any ideas would be VERY appreciated. Thanks!

That's the Kindle app not a driver.
