Calibre and jailbroken PW4 problem

JB noob here. I recently jailbroke my PW4, and am having trouble getting Calibre working with books sent over via the wireless server and OPDS options within KOReader. (The non-JB approach of mobi transfer by USB cable works fine.)

I transferred some epub and mobi books from Calibre via the 3 mechanisms (USB, wireless server OPDS). If I am connected via USB cable, Calibre sees the mobi books but not the epubs. Furthermore the "on device" column is ticked only for those mobi books transferred via USB.

If I connect the PW4 via wireless server, Calibre sees the device but doesn’t recognize that there are any books on it.

I have done Calibre and PW4 reboots, and tried deletions of the metadata.calibre file. I haven't registered the PW4 since JB, if that makes any difference. Any tips on getting Calibre to work better with wirelessly transferred books?

In the properties of the Kindle driver, did you add epub as an allowed format?

Thanks for the replies. mergen3107, the KOReader community did have some insights. David, it wasn't a driver issue, it seems OPSD-transferred files are orphaned, but wireless-server-transferred ones can work with Calibre.
