problem seeing/sending to device
I suspect this problem is in my kindle not calibre but I will try here. When connecting my just purchased Kindle to my mac the "plug" screen on Kindle and disc on desktop appears. I eject to read which works but if the kindle is moved the disc reappears on the desktop and I must eject again.
Upon launching calibre recognition of the device is very erratic, sometimes nothing, sometimes OK. At times I can send to device OK, at times I get error message:
[Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/Volumes/Kindle 2/'
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages/calibre/gui2/device.py", line 81, in run
File "site-packages/calibre/gui2/device.py", line 405, in _upload_books
File "site-packages/calibre/devices/usbms/driver.py", line 252, in upload_books

File "site-packages/calibre/devices/usbms/device.py", line 166, in free_space
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/Volumes/Kindle 2/'
Loose connection in the Kindle? Bad USB cord?
I tried a drag and drop from calibre into the disc on desktop but that did not seem to work? Maybe it is not supposed to function this way?
Update, I am able to drag and drop, once I do it correctly!

thanks dwanthny, The kindle instructs to eject if one wishes to read or shop while charging. I have tried it both ways ejected and not ejected. No clear pattern. It seems although exporting from calibre to kindle gives this error message, I can send from kindle into calibre just fine.
I thought I had some kind of malfunction in USB cable or port on the kindle as the eject screen comes and goes if the device is moved. Others have told me this is common in usb devices being charged through the computer?
If the connection is faulty I would think I could not send from kindle to calibre either?
I can drag and drop so I can work around this but it is a puzzle.

Simply moving the device should not make the device react in any way. If it does then you either have a faulty cable or a faulty USB port (could be PC end or Kindle end) as this tends to indicate an intermittent connection..
