@nogle thanks but I'm wondering if perhaps the admins of this forum might think about creating a sticky that compiles all of the various solutions to this problem since there are a bunch of other folks who are also suffering from the same issue.
When I first got my Kobo I didn't have this problem at all. Calibre worked perfectly.
The only things that have changed on my computer and therefor might have affected it are the following:
#1 Firmware upgrades to Kobo
#2 Upgrades to Calibre
#3 A USB Driver conflict ( I bought a Samsung Galaxy S2 and installed the connectivity suite and drivers)
Any ideas would be swell.
Thanks in advance
