Just to add a little more.....

I can confirm that in my case at least, Calibre OR my particular laptop does not remove the KT properly from the WIN7 system, and this most certainly causes database corruptions.....

I see in my laptop's device manager that the USB mass storage device has a Warning exclamation mark next to it immediately after Calibre has "removed" it.

If I remove the KT in the normal WIN7 way, it disengages correctly. I don't currently have any other PC available to double check against, I'm afraid.

I am not having any problem ejecting the Kobo Touch from Calibre with WinXP. I am encountering one minor problem that's still there in 0.8.10. My sideloaded books from Calibre appear as usual on the Home screen after the KT has disconnected and finished processing new content. When I click on one it shows the cover page initially as expected, but the page number shows it is apparently the last page of the book. When I page forward, I'm flipped back to the Home screen and the book is gone. I can re-find it in the Library, and a 2nd attempt to read it goes normally. So not a huge problem, but something isn't being communicated correctly between Calibre and the KT.

Calibre on my Vista machine has never ejected my KT*, it just disconnects from Calibre itself. I always have to go to the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the system tray.

*Edit: Until today that is. Wierd. . .
