with 10K+ books, Calibre is going to be very
busy sorting things
If you have been Killing the process, you have been killing all progress.
Give the job a few HOURS to get done (the first time) with that many books. It has to compile the 'On-Device' list and then it places a (XML) copy (metadata.calibre) on the device. that file is/can be big and takes time to write to Flash. The next time you connect, the file is read, speeding up the process a LOT.
