1) Let it complete, Fully (the task wheel stops).
2) DO NOT delete the 2 files Calibre leaves on your device (these are the a)the unique device ID to calibre. b)The list of books Calibre knows were there.
Calibre performs a quicker check on known books, saving quite a bit of time.

Depending on your device, there can be a 'Read Metadata from Files on Device' option to disable.
