You have to select CONNECT on the Touch eReader. It's only when you have made that selection that the Kobo will appear as a USB drive for either Kobo Desktop, ADE OR Calibre to see it.

Are you using Windows? If so, when the Kobo is attached via USB and you have selected CONNECT, then does Device Manager show any devices as unknown?
