Device: iPad Mini
iOS Plugin Issue

Bug description:
Calibre v2.3 64bit

Windows 8.1 64bit

I have an iPad mini that I'm trying to use to read my ebooks. I am
using the Kindle App. I installed the iOS plugin and set it up for
use with the Kindle app. However, when I plug my iPad in, the
following error appears in Calibre:

Unable to connect to iDevice

The message pops up repeatedly and the only way to close the error
message is to close the Calibre program entirely. Also, when I
navigate to Preferences>Miscellaneous with the iPad plugged in, I
receive the following error:

calibre, version 2.2.0
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>ZipImportError</b>:can't find module calibre.gui2.preferences.misc

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\preferences\main.py", line 283, in show_plugin
File "site-packages\calibre\customize\__init__.py", line 642, in create_widget
File "importlib\__init__.py", line 37, in import_module
File "site.py", line 66, in load_module
ZipImportError: can't find module calibre.gui2.preferences.misc

This prevents me from running the Debug tool with the iPad plugged in.
However, I ran it anyway, with the iPad unplugged. The output is
below:

I tried the debug tool again and was able to start it with the iPad plugged in, but it failed with the following error:

ERROR: Debugging failed: Running debug device detection failed. Click Show Details for more information.

I am having the same problem.

Win7 64bit SP1
iPhone 4s iOS8

I tried a different tack. I started Calibre with the phone connected and no iOS plugin installed. The program popped up a window requesting I install the iOS Reader and Marvin plugins. When I attempted to activate the iOS plugin, the following error popped up:

calibre, version 2.3.0
ERROR: Install Plugin Failed: A problem occurred while installing this plugin. This plugin will now be uninstalled. Please post the error message in details below into the forum thread for this plugin and restart Calibre.

Any suggestions?
