The icon should be on the Tool bar, with or without the device connected (obviously you wont get to choose that drive
) . STD is also useful for loading SD cards that are in a Card reader.
The 'save to device' button only shows up when Kobo is connected. That's what I generally use to make my library changes when Kobo is connected. I think you can also right click on the book[s] you want and the dropdown menu will let you do it this way also. Is that what you mean?
Save to Disk I use as my Calibre backup in a different folder than where my books are located.
I don't think I've ever used any other method to update my Kobo?
