Calibre won't see Kindle 2

I'm a new Calibre user, and no matter what I do, Calibre will not seem to "see" my Kindle 2. My computer is recognizing it just fine (and I can save files to it using Calibre's Save to Disk function). I've tried plugging in the Kindle when Calibre is already open, and opening Calibre when the Kindle is plugged in; I've tried resetting the Kindle, and using different USB ports for the Kindle. And I've tried it all with version 0.5.14 and beta 0.6.0b11. Nothing is working. I feel like I must be missing something obvious or doing something wrong. I've searched through old threads but found nothing to help. Any suggestions?

Of course I spoke too soon... I just uninstalled Calibre completely, then reinstalled (0.6.0b11), then restarted the computer (which I had done before - just without the uninstall/reinstall), and now it's showing up. Thanks, and sorry for the false alarm - I'll report back if there are any further problems.

However: now when I click on the Preferences button in 0.6.0b11, I get the following error:

TypeError:argument 1 of QComboBox.findText() has an invalid type

(I can open a new thread for this if you think I should...)
