Failure sending library to iPad

I'm trying to send my books to my new iPad mini. Calibre works for a minute or two and then displays this message:

calibre, version 1.18.0

Update: I can copy one book at a time ... but that will take a very, very long time.

You can create a ticket with a debug log, but I'd strongly encourage you to use Marvin on your new iPad mini. Marvin is far better supported with many more options and is calibre-friendly, unlike iBooks.

Marvin has a forum here at MobileRead.

And now things have gotten even stranger. I tried to copy a book to the device and the copy failed. This has happened several times. When it fails, I try again and it usually works. This book failed three times. But then when I looked at my iPad, I see that book, but with a grayed out cover. Then another one appeared. And another. And another. I closed Calibre, but copies of the book kept appearing. I can't click edit & delete. Finally, I restarted the iPad and the books stopped appearing and several vanished. But I can't do anything with them. When I got back into Calibre, it said that I had two copies of that book on the device. I tried to remove from the device via Calibre. One copy deleted (and a few of the gray versions vanished). But when I try to delete again, I get this:

calibre, version 1.18.0
ERROR: Error: Error communicating with device

u'iTunes/Reamde - Neal Stephenson.epub'

Traceback (most recent call last):

KeyError: u'iTunes/Title - Author.epub'

(Note that I've replaced the actual title & author above.
