[Android App] Problem with Calibre Companion
I've installed calibre companion on my galaxy note (under ICS)
On my iMac a have Snow Leopard and running calibre 0.9.0
I activated the sharing and when trying to connect from companion i'm getting message:
"The connection failed because some other device is currently connected to calibre. Disconnect that device then try again."
I have NO other devices connected to calibre....

Do you have your Galaxy Note connected to your computer USB when this happens? If so did you answer Yes to the "Do you want calibre to manage it?" question (see attached)? You have to answer No to that question if you want Calibre Companion to manage your connection to calibre.
If you don't see the question attached have you previously setup the User defined USB driver? If so you must disable that driver.
Post the data that chaley requested and we should know what the problem is.

I have the same problem. Also on a Samsung Galaxy Note.
No other devices connected.
On Calibre installation, the welcome guide asked me about my device, which is kind of weird... maybe I don't have a device? Maybe I'm just planning on using the content server? Anyway, I had to tell it something so I entered the "Android" device. Dunno if that matters.
Moving on. I do not connect my phone to the computer via cable at all. But when connecting wirelessly I get that message.. "The connection failed because some other device is currently connected to calibre...." which is weird in itself. I mean, it's 2012... we have multithreading and multiple network connections... If the message was "There is already 500 devices connected, you'll have to wait!" I'd understand.. but "some other device" ?? Come on...
Oh, I've tried that debug device detection thingy in Calibre but it seems to lock up, I'm not getting anything.

The question is "what other device is connected?" Calibre shows the name of the currently connected device on the bottom left of the screen, something like "Connected xxxyyy". What is written there?
The reason to run debug device detection is to see what calibre thinks is connected. If it truly never finishes then calibre is confused about some device connected to your computer. Do you have any devices connected by wire, even if they aren't connected to calibre? A phone that is charging? Something else?
