Kindle not recognized
Having spent over ten hours yesterday, and several today attempting to resolve this problem, I am, finally, out of frustration, seeking assistance from the calibre community.
I have read tens of pages in the forums addressing similar difficulties, but none of the suggestions worked to solve my problem. Nothing I have done has enabled me to get calibre to recognize the Kindle 2 plugged into any of the computer's USB slots. The computer does recognize the Kindle is plugged into it as Removable Disk G:, but, again, calibre does not "see" it.
If I left click on the G: drive I get a message, "Please insert a disk into Removable Disk (G”. If I right click on the G: drive the message is, "You need to format the disk in drive G: before you can use it. Do you want to format?"
The Kindle shows the USB charging screen.
The following is the debug log for the calibre:
calibre Debug log
('Windows', '7', '6.1.7600')
Windows: ('7', '6.1.7600', '', 'Multiprocessor Free')
Started up in 11.2279999256
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I believe your Kindle was at some time disconnected from your computer without properly "ejecting" it first. Below is a quote from another thread describing my experience as to how I personally determined why the same thing was happening to me.
What to do about fixing your immediate problem? The best first thing I can suggest is to powercycle your computer (turn it all the way off, then on again) and also restart your Kindle [Menu button -> Settings -> Menu button -> Restart (not Reset to Factory Defaults- that's overkill)]
umm... that should fix it. At least it did for me. I don't see that you should need to, but you could then also try going to Device Manager (Start button/orb -> Run... -> type: devmgmt.msc ). Under "Disk Drives" there should be "Kindle Internal Storage USB Device" listed. Right click it, click "uninstall," Click OK on the confirm dialog. After the Kindle driver is removed from there, click "Action" in the menu bar at the top and then "Scan for hardware changes." It should rediscover the Kindle.
Again, I don't think you have to do that, as the first suggestion worked for me, but it is still an option you can try.

Thanks, chyron8472, for your response. This is the first opportunity I have had to respond to you.
I tried your suggestion without any success. The computer I was attempting to have recognize the Kindle is my Wife's PC, which operates the Windows 7 OS; the Kindle be longs to her as well. After the four days of working on her PC and Mac (I could get the Mac, and calibre, to recognize my literati, but it would not recognize my the Kindle!) I decided to try and get my PC (OS Windows XP) recognizing the Kindle and literati, which it has done!!! However, calibre only recognizes the Kindle! Sooooooooo, the struggle continues!
Oh, by the way, if you are having any difficulty with reading a book on calibre you may wish to try the "Starko Guide."
