When I open Calibre it show a device as being connected even though there is none attached. I can close it and connect my Nook and it works fine. I think it may be seeing my C drive as a device.

Any help would be appreciated.

Did you ever use connect/share: Connect to folder?

I do get this message "calibre, version 0.9.32
ERROR: Device already detected: A device (Folder Device) is already detected by calibre. If you wish to debug the detection of another device, first disconnect this device."
How do I get rid of the folder device?

On the icon bar there should be an icon named device.

Click on the arrow beside it and eject this device

You are most likely correct.

Go to Preferences - Tweaks and restore to default the tweak you set to auto connect to a folder on startup. The tweak should look like the below after you restore to default. Don't forget to Apply the change (lower right) after you restore the default and then Apply again top left.

Code:
# Specify a folder calibre should connect to at startup 

 auto_connect_to_folder = ''

All I can think of, if you had used Tweak (and IMHO you should Not in this case) to connect to the Nook

is you missed one of the 'Apply' steps.
Tweak has 2:
1) for each line modified (near the bottom) changed
2) to end the tweak session (at the top)

You are absolutely correct. I followed your instructions and that fixed the problem.
Many, many thanks for your help.

I'm glad you got it all sorted out. It's great that theducks was able to state what you needed to do in a way you could hear.

Next time maybe I'll color this section.
