I've tried these things:
1. Plugging the kindle into other USB ports - I get the same message
2. Tried a different USB to Kindle cord
3. Tried downloading to a different Kindle
4. Updated Calibre version
5. Uninstalled Calibre and reinstalled it
6. Ran debug and got this:

I am not a "techy". But any help would be welcome. Thanks

Right click the send to device button and then reset the default send to device action to be "Send to main memory"
