Device: kindle
problem seeing/sending to device

I suspect this problem is in my kindle not calibre but I will try here. When connecting my just purchased Kindle to my mac the "plug" screen on Kindle and disc on desktop appears. I eject to read which works but if the kindle is moved the disc reappears on the desktop and I must eject again.

Upon launching calibre recognition of the device is very erratic, sometimes nothing, sometimes OK. At times I can send to device OK, at times I get error message:

[Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/Volumes/Kindle 2/'

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages/calibre/gui2/", line 81, in run
File "site-packages/calibre/gui2/", line 405, in _upload_books
File "site-packages/calibre/devices/usbms/", line 252, in upload_books
File "site-packages/calibre/devices/usbms/", line 1038, in _sanity_check
File "site-packages/calibre/devices/usbms/", line 166, in free_space
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/Volumes/Kindle 2/'

Loose connection in the Kindle? Bad USB cord?

I tried a drag and drop from calibre into the disc on desktop but that did not seem to work? Maybe it is not supposed to function this way?



Update, I am able to drag and drop, once I do it correctly!
