I've got today a brand new Kindle Fire HD 8.9, Calibre does not recognize it. In the "Debug Device Detection" window it shows :

Note that product ID for the Kindle is 0x8 - I found in this forums message where Kovid mentions that Kindle Fire product IDs known to him are 0x6 and 0x7 (and 0xa after he updated Calibre as a result of the message), see http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...11&postcount=2
Is this a new version of Kindle Fire HD 8.9 with new USB IDs?
If this is so, would it be possible to update Calibre to include these IDs into a list of known Kindle Fire HD devices?
