Hi guys, I've been getting the following error message when connecting iTunes 11 to Calibre. I have the newest version of both. I've tried re-installing Calibre and iTunes, but get the same error.

____________________

calibre, version 0.9.11
ERROR: Error: Error communicating with device

Command failed:
OSERROR: -1712
MESSAGE: Apple event timed out.
COMMAND: app(u'/Applications/iTunes.app').sources.ID(74).user_playlists.ID(1336 18).file_tracks.ID(134696).name.get()

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages/calibre/gui2/device.py", line 85, in run
File "site-packages/calibre/gui2/device.py", line 470, in _books
File "site-packages/calibre/devices/apple/driver.py", line 3282, in books

Any advice/help?

I've noticed that the connection times out randomly; all its trying to do is update calibre with the number of books that are on/in iTunes.

Thanks Kindly.
