Device name in Calibre

Hi all!

I have a Kindle Oasis 2 and have recently bought an Oasis 3 to take the overflow of my 9GB eBook collection.

I've renamed the devices as far as Windows is concerned but Calibre sees both devices simply as "Amazon Kindle"

Is there any way Calibre can be made to differentiate between the two?

Thanks in advance.

Papa

No I'm afraid both devices use the same kindle driver under the hood and have the same USB ids.

Thanks Kovid.

So there's no way I can get Calibre to assign them different names?
