My tablet automatically upgraded to Android Version 5.1.1 (still customized by Amazon). (The spec listing of Android 4.4 is the original version the tablet shipped with.) The cases that were available for it (may have changed) have an opening for the rear camera that looks great when the case is closed. However, when the case cover is opened for use, the cover blocks the camera lens (SMH). An SD card can be easily connected using a cheap $5 adapter that plugs right into the miniUSB port. The power cable has a removable wall-plugin so that the cable can also be used to connect directly to a PC USB port. I did have to google how to get the PC (Win10) to recognize the tablet via USB; I think it had something to do with adding a new device.

Everything you downloaded can be uploaded to the cloud, then downloaded to your computer. See if you can find someone who can read and explain this to you. Best of luck!
This is a great little tablet, much more powerful than the original Kindle Fire which I replaced with this one for my daughter. Much more sturdy as well - especially the charging port. I paid $200 for an original fire 3 years ago, and $60 less for one twice as powerful 3 years later. a great deal, IMO.
It is hard to get certain OS's to recognize the Fire as a storage device, even though it "connects" and installs drivers just fine. I use Ghost Commander from the Amazon App store to transfer files wirelessly. You have to install the Ghost Commander Samba Share app as well to play nice with Windows.
