Stumped-Calibre won't seem to send books to my Kindle 3

Hi All: I was using Calibre just fine, and I just downloaded the latest release a day ago. Now, either the Kindle 3 that I have is malfunctioning, or Calibre isn't working properly because it won't seem to transfer the books to my Kindle. Calibre says they are on the device, but my Kindle doesn't show any of my books I downloaded from Calibre...any ideas?

You are likely transferring azw3 books and you have not updated the firmware on your kindle to 3.4. Right click on the Kindle icon in calibre, select configure this device and tell calibre not to send azw3 to your kindle.

Let's see...Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, and...Kovid Goyal ; yep...I can say that our Kovid makes the cut of genius (imho!). I upgraded my Kindle 3 to the firmware update 3.4; and then did as KG suggested, and de-selected the azw3 option. Calibre was then sending the books to my Kindle, and indeed they appeared! I am very grateful to KG for replying and for taking time to help me solve this problem.
