Have also tried with 4000 books. Same problem.
My guess is that it is taking a *very long time* to send the metadata back to calibre. This can take between 1/4 and 1/2 second per book. 4000 books would take 15 to 30 minutes. You would see this happening in the debug log if you ran calibre in debug mode from the command line.

And yes, we will look for ways to shorten this. We cannot eliminate it because calibre requires reception of that data.

Also: CC does not create subdirs, even if specified using "Configure Device". I use subdirs for each "genre" like this: {#coll}/{title} - {authors}. Works fine when connecting to folder on memory card as device. I then use these subdirs to create collections in Mantano to facilitate browsing.
This is intentional. Our fear was that subdirectories would break extension routing. Now that we have some more experience, we will revisit this choice to see if we can safely permit paths.
