Calibre not seeing the ereader doesn't tell us much. It relies on the OS to mount the device. If it doesn't, then calibre won't work with it. So, with the details given, the only advice we can give is to restart both the device and computer and try a different cable or port. To go further, we need information such as what OS and what firmware. Are there any errors displayed? Can you see the device using the OS? Can you make changes on the device?

Presumably it's also not being seen by your PC but that would be the first thing to check.

Next would be to do a factory reset of the Glo. That actually worked with a Nook GL3 that I had.

It didn't work with a Kindle Voyage, though, which I ultimately discovered had a defective USB. Of course it was 1 week out of warranty when it occurred & Amazon wouldn't fix it.

Try a short micro USB cable directly connected to your computer, instead of one connected to a hub. My Kobo Clara HD has failed to be recognized (by my computer and therefore by Calibre) when using a long USB cable connecting to a Dell monitor and one of the USB ports on that monitor.
