Device: Kobo, Kobo Wireless
Kobo not recognized by Calibre (or Kobo desktop app)

Hey all,

I've searched and searched but haven't been able to find an answer to this issue. I have a brand new Kobo Wireless, and it won't connect to Calibre. I have the following log:
Looking for devices...
(8759L, 16737L, 272L, u'Kobo', u'eReader', u'KBN647132S21732')
Detected possible device KOBO

I've tried rebooting the device, and my Mac itself, to no avail. Any suggestions?? Thanks in advance.
