PRS500 DeviceBusy on Linux Mint 9

Hi all.

Quick question, I have just bitten the bullet and switched from Windows to Linux Mint 9.
The problem is, I cant get Calibre to send anything to my PRS500.
I checked the debug and it said device is in use by another application .

Anyone have any suggestions as to how I can solve this?

Ta in advance
Ferrus
