Calibre did not detect correct memory partition for Sony PRS 300

Ok, firstly I am sorry if this had been posted before but I already used the search function to no avail. Maybe it was answered in some unrelated thread...

but anyway... I have a small problem with Calibre. It's not major but just to point it out, maybe I did something wrong or maybe it's a small bug or maybe it's me.

I have Sony PRS 300, when I first installed Calibre, I can choose between the 500/505 or the newer ones 300/600. So I choose 300/600 and everything went fine. Unfortunately, Calibre detected the other memory partition of my reader, the one that have Sony ebook Library installation files for Mac and Windows.

Of course I received an error when sending the book to my reader. So what I did was, I ran the 'wizard' again and this time I choose 500/505 and walla, Calibre detected my other memory partition where all the books are.

But once a while Calibre will still detect the other useless partition. And I ran the wizard again and choose the other one and Calibre detects the correct memory again. This had been going on for a while, on and off.

It's not major since it works at the end but it does bugging me a little bit. Why is this happening? Is this normal? Or did I do something wrong? I'm worried if one day none of the memory partition would be detected at all!

Another Q, can I merge these two partitions into one, without having to erased my books in the ereader? Or is this something I'm not able to do forever?

Thanks for your help!

Ok here goes. My profile is the 500/505 because the last time I chose 300/600 was not working.
Anything weird? Not that I know what all of these mean, lol!

Seems to all be in order, but I'll make a small change to the 505/300 driver that should prevent this from ever happening in the next release.
