"Error communicating with device" on samba share

I get the following error while trying to export an ebook to a folder on the network which is running Samba for file sharing.

Code:
calibre, version 0.9.6
ERROR: Error: Error communicating with device

[Errno 2] No such file or directory: u'\\density\\ebooks\\test\\Meyer, Stephenie\\Host, The.epub'

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 85, in run
  File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 551, in _upload_books
  File "site-packages\calibre\devices\usbms\driver.py", line 267, in upload_books
  File "site-packages\calibre\devices\usbms\cli.py", line 50, in put_file
  File "site-packages\calibre\utils\filenames.py", line 182, in case_preserving_open_file
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: u'\\density\\ebooks\\test\\Meyer, Stephenie\\Host, The.epub'
Strange thing is, I'm sure this worked either with old versions of calibre or with old versions of samba. Is there anything I can tweak in Calibre, or anything I can tweak in samba to try to remedy this?

Others may respond with advice that works, but I think that you probably can't correct this. Multiple users have reported their networked installs of calibre have recently run into trouble. The official line is to not run it on a network.

My novice approach would be to export books locally then use an OS file manager or native sync software to get the books out to the share location.

Good Luck.
