Question How do I tell Calibre to ignore my phone?

I have a Samsung S3 phone and it used to show up under Ignored Devices. One day without thinking, I removed it from the Ignored Devices.

I can't find a way to tell Calibre to ignore it again. If I plug in the phone after Calibre is started, it takes about 5 minutes before the "job" is done so I can use Calibre again. I've tried disabling the Android Driver in plugins and Smart Device apps without success. I don't read books on my phone and don't need Calibre to interface with the phone.

Please help.

Right click on the device icon in calibre and choose configure this device. There is an option to ignore it there.

what icon

Sorry, i'm feeling very stupid, but where is the device icon I'm supposed to click on. For the life of me, I can't find it....

BTW, great, fantastic work on Calibre...

cheers,

JP

device icons only appear when a CONNECTED device is detected by Calibre (and you will see the device name on the status line at the bottom of Calibre)

If you disable the Android driver in Preferences->Plugins calibre won't detect Android phones. Then if you get a new phone you wont have to remember how to disable it in calibre.

If you later decide you do want calibre to detect your phone you can re-enable it in Preference-Ignored devices.

There is also the Unplugged plugin. This lets you disable the device detection. It's useful if you want to plug a device in while calibre is running, but don't want calibre to see it.
