Bug Description

I noticed that calibre is not showing the Devices list correctly when running the Welcome wizard for the first time.

I wanted to pick my Kindle model and when I saw that the options are all the same I canceled the wizard. My intention was to see if it would detect the correct device model automatically if it was already connected when launching the application.

I launched it again and noticed that the WW did not appear anymore. Once I found the menu item to launch it again manually I noticed that it did not detect my device model automatically, however the entries in the devices list suddenly made a lot more sense.

I deleted the entire portable installation directory and reproduced the issue after extracting it again. This time I needed to launch the wizard manually a second time (but no application restart) to get the actual device list to show, so I assue there is a time-related factor in this.

I am using 6.1.0 portable. Fresh calibre install. English Win10 21H2, but German locale (I switched the suggested language in the first WW step back from German to English).
