Nook GlowLight Plus not recognized/very slow

I have a Nook GlowLight Plus that Calibre only recognizes occasionally (about 1 in 10 times?) and that, when it *is* recognized, about half the time is VERY slow--Calibre takes literally hours to do an initial read of the contents of the device. I don't think it's the cable, as I've tried multiple cables and with all of them, the device *is* visible every time to the OS.

Device debug output is:

That output shows your device
The initial scan MUST complete ( might take hours).
Once that is done, Calibre writes 2 files to the device (one contains what-where). Subsequent connections should be lots quicker.
If those get removed, you will need to repeat the Long scan.

What might be removing those files? It seems to do a long scan about half of the time that it is recognized.

Also: most of the time, it doesn't do any scan at all, even though the device shows up in the debug output. Is that normal?

The debug output just says you PC sees the device, Thus Calibre should also see it since it has previously.
I have no idea what might be killing the files calibre leaves behind. A rogue A/V?

I do notice you disabled a KOBO Touch. Is there a reason? (Preferences:Ignored devices)

It's a disabled plugin, not a disabled device. I started using this older Nook after my Kobo died; for the latter, I was using the Kobo Touch Extended driver, which recommends disabling the Kobo Touch driver.

Your device's storage is likely failing. Reset it and/or re-format the disk might allow it to live a little longer.

Anyone know how to reformat the disk on a Nook Glowlight from a Mac? The only way to do direct access to a Nook from a Mac that I know of is via the Android File Transfer app, which opens a file browser but doesn't actually mount a volume.

Trying to get my hands on a Windows box to reformat the Nook, but in the interim: every time that the Nook does get recognized by Calibre and start the long scan, it now consistently runs for about 3 hours and then fails with this error:

Code:
calibre, version 3.40.1

Not sure if that leads to any conclusion beyond "reformat" but thought I'd share it just in case.

PTP is for photos

I'm not aware of any way to do so.
