Ah, I see. I hadn't installed Calibre before today so that's not it.

Unfortunately I've tried uninstalling and reinstalled eBook library many times - and it even doesn't work on a fresh install on a new PC.

Basically when I plug in the reader, if Library is open it simply freezes (the window says Not Responding and it doesn't repaint) though everything else in Windows works fine. If I plug the reader in before starting Library, the Library window never comes up (though I can see it running in Task Manager).

I can't recall exactly when it stopped working, unfortunately. It was always a bit flaky from the start when I got the reader back in December -- maybe 10% of the time it wouldn't see the reader, but it always worked the 2nd time. Probably about March or so it just stopped working entirely. I don't *think* I installed anything new -- this machine is pretty stable, I just use it for browsing and email -- but I can't be sure. The fact that the problem now occurs on 3 different PCs though makes me think there's something screwed up in the reader that a hard reset doesn't undo.
