I've been having the exact same problem. I tend to only use PDF & LIT formats and I noticed that it only seemed to be the LIT files that were suffering from this error.
Basically the files were uploaded to my reader but the meta data wasn't transferred with it so Calibre doesn't recognize it correctly to note if it's been transferred to the reader or not.
I had to go back and delete the files from my reader and re-send to device, that seemed to solve the problem.
