would probably be a better place for dedicated help...

but since I hadn't run calibre in forever...

I connected my kindle... Device appears
Spoiler:


I choose something I have imported that is not on the device and choose SEND TO DEVICE (its the second option on the "right click" list)

Spoiler:


It sends to the device. I choose SHOW BOOKS IN MAIN MEMORY

Spoiler:


it appears in the devices list of stuff with a green tick

Spoiler:


I eject device.

Thats it.

I successfully completed the jailbreak process by rolling the firmware back and re-installing 5.3.3 as well as the devcerts and the rescue pack. I'm guessing there is more to it than that as far as direct transfer of eBooks. I apologize if this has been answered previously and I simply didn't see it. Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated.. as you can tell my experience and knowledge with all of this is very limited.
The presence or absence of a jailbreak is irrelevent to your ability to send books to your PW from Calibre via usb. Are you able to open/read these books with Calibre's viewer? If not, then this is likely a DRM issue.

PS- I agree with twobob, the calibre forum is your best bet for help.
