In the next release (0.8) there is going to be a user defined device driver. Chaley talks about it below, you might want to give it a try.

You specify three things to set it up:
- The USB IDs to match your device.
- For Windows, the names of the drives for the device for both main memory and a card.
- The root folders for books in main memory and the card.
There is a function in preferences -> miscellaneous to help you get the correct USB IDs and (on windows) the drive names.
If you use this driver to replace an existing one, you must disable the original or it will match (and connect) first.
Note that this driver provides no device-specific functionality. For example, it doesn't know about Sony collections, Kindle annotations, and the Nook Color magazine special case. It provides functions similar to connect-to-folder, but with automatic connection and main + SD card capability.
