[Old Thread] Slow to 'get list of books on device' for Kindle DX


Each time I connect my Kindle DX via USB, Calibre consistently takes nearly 6 minutes to complete the 'get list of books on device' job. It takes this long regardless of whether it's the first time I connect during a given Calibre session, or multiple connects/ejects during the same session.

Is this normal, or it is possible that it's getting hung up on a particular file or file type? There's nothing in the log (show job details) to give me any idea of what it's doing during this delay. What exactly is it doing during this job? Is it more than just doing a directory listing?

I currently have 169 books on my DX, a combination of Amazon-purchased books/blogs/newspapers, converted books, and PDFs.

Thanks for any insights!
