Good Reading.
This is pertinent to my question. The page from the developers website states:

"Amazon have removed the ability to manipulate collections completely in their newer models, like the Kindle Touch and Kindle Fire, making even the above plugin useless. If you really want the ability to manage collections on your Kindle via a USB connection, we encourage you to complain to Amazon about it, or get a reader where this is supported, like the SONY Readers."

Which confuses me even more because it makes me interpret this statement that I can't use my Kindle via a USB to access my Calibre library on any new Kindle. To me collections is a feature of the Kindle that I hardly use, as I call my Calibre my Library. Which is which? Perhaps Calibre has a "Collections" feature, but I don't use it.

This is cryptic to me because Kindle Fire HD was not spelled out as an android on his website, not everyone knows that it is. Also the above mentioned paragraph is very confusing to me. Since Calibre doesn't see my KFHD when USB plugged in, this means to me that Kindle Touch or any new Kindle will be the same, not detected when plugged into USB to Calibre. Yikes!

See why I am confused?

Since I have ordered a Kindle PW and have a Kindle Fire HD, this is an issue for me.

Too much information overload for me.
