8.14 - Registering External Hard Drive as Device

First, apologies if this is not the correct place to post this.

I use the portable version of calibre for windows and I run it on an portable hard drive, and as of 8.14 it is constantly saying it is connected to a device. The device being the external hard drive.

Is this a bug, or is there a setting that i can use to exclude the portable hard drive as a device?

Cheers, Aleyst

Find out what driver is matching your hard drive and disable it in Preferences->plugins.

I disabled all Device Interface Plugins... no change there. It's still picking up the HD as a device and showing me the Main Tool Bar.. with Device connected, Option.

You have to restart after disabling. If you disabled all device plugins calibre cannot be connecting automatically. The only other way it can connect automatically is if you have set the auto connect to folder on startup tweak in preferences->tweaks.

Ah, that was it .. I used that tweak, thinking it was something else.
Thanks a bunch.
