Sending files to MTP device without conversion

I am trying to send some books to an MTP-device using send-to-device. The device is a Nexus 7, connected via USB. I have configured calibre to send epub, pdf, cbz, and cbr files to the MTP-device in the device-configuration dialog. I have also defined two format-specific options to send cbr and cbz files to their own directory, "Comics".

Sending epub files works fine. When I try to send pdf/cbr/cbz files, I get a popup declaring that these formats are not compatible, along with an offer to automatically convert them. If I decline the offer to autoconvert, the files are not sent.

I have appropriate software to read these formats natively on the device, so I would like to send them without conversion. I have the feeling that somewhere there is an option or tweak to disable this conversion, but I have not been able to find it.

I also realize that I could save the files to disk and manually copy them over, or buy Calibre-Companion, but I would prefer to do it from within calibre, if possible. Any help with this is appreciated.

Environment: calibre 0.9.1, Windows 7 64-bit
