From what you say below, clearly calibre thinks something else is connected. More later...

On Calibre installation, the welcome guide asked me about my device, which is kind of weird... maybe I don't have a device? Maybe I'm just planning on using the content server? Anyway, I had to tell it something so I entered the "Android" device. Dunno if that matters.
Choosing the device sometimes controls the sizes of covers etc. It doesn't do anything for wireless device connections.

Moving on. I do not connect my phone to the computer via cable at all. But when connecting wirelessly I get that message.. "The connection failed because some other device is currently connected to calibre...." which is weird in itself. I mean, it's 2012... we have multithreading and multiple network connections... If the message was "There is already 500 devices connected, you'll have to wait!" I'd understand.. but "some other device" ?? Come on...
Sorry, but that is how calibre works. It supports one device at a time. CC can't change that.

The question is "what other device is connected?" Calibre shows the name of the currently connected device on the bottom left of the screen, something like "Connected xxxyyy". What is written there?

Oh, I've tried that debug device detection thingy in Calibre but it seems to lock up, I'm not getting anything.
What version of calibre are you running, and on what operating system? How long did you wait for it to produce something?

The reason to run debug device detection is to see what calibre thinks is connected. If it truly never finishes then calibre is confused about some device connected to your computer. Do you have any devices connected by wire, even if they aren't connected to calibre? A phone that is charging? Something else?
