Transfer MOBI file from computer to Kindle 3G

by furb2u / December 21, 2011 8:40 AM PST

I have a book that I bought (not from Amazon) but it said it was for Kindle. I plugged my Kindle into the USB port and opened the folder where I have the mobi file. I am not sure how to proceed from here because there are many folders in the Kindle. What do I do? Thanks.
