But the KFHD is based on ICS and doesn't.

If you are running Calibre on Windows, there is test mode (beta) for MTP support (which the KFHD supports). I don't remember offhand where in Calibre preferences the setting is stored, but I'm sure someone will post details.

Running OSX on my Macbook Pro, I'm dead in the water.... there's no MTP support for OSX.
Look here.
