Calibre crashes when I try to connect with Kindle
My Kindle broke and I got a new one. Unfortunately, Calibre crashed when I try to read the device through it.
Basically, what happens is that it tries to get a list of the titles from the device, which goes well, but before it gets to 100%, the whole program crashes. I get a message from Windows Vista stating that Calibre.exe has stopped working and must be closed. I had previously owned a Kindle and Sony ereader and Calibre would often freeze up or slow down, but it wouldn't just completely crash.
I think part of the problem is that I manually copied the files from my old Kindle to the new one just via Windows Explorer--maybe too much for Calibre to handle? However, it's not like my Kindle is even close to full.
I'm using Calibre 8.2.1 and Windows Vista. Any thoughts?

I am having the same issue except I am using Windows 8.1 and Calibre 2.25.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

No, I am pretty sure I've seen worse. Maybe even 2009
Also, one wonders if the OP tried Kovid's advice because last I checked it was still good advice.
