Device: Sony PRS-T1
Collections not created on Sony PRS-T1

I would like to use Calibre with my Sony PRS-T1.

I am trying to have the collections created automatically. However when I move books to my device, I get an error message.

ERROR: Error: Error communicating with device

coercing to Unicode: need string or buffer, NoneType found

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 85, in run
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 496, in _sync_booklists
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\prst1\driver.py", line 245, in sync_booklists
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\prst1\driver.py", line 278, in update_device_database
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\prst1\driver.py", line 690, in update_device_collections
TypeError: coercing to Unicode: need string or buffer, NoneType found

I have set the Sony T1 Plugin as only "series" as described in your FAQ.

I have also set the Export option to manage collections "On send only".

Yet the books transfer fine, they just do not get put into any collections.

Please help as I would dearly love to NOT use Sony Reader Desktop!!!

Thanks!
