[PRS-T2] database disk image is malformed

Hello !

I've just got today my first eReader, the Sony PRS-T2 for my birthday !

I've installed Calibre 0.9.14 and successfully copied about 10 ebooks to the reader, but now when I connect it, I get this message :

Quote:
calibre, version 0.9.14
ERREUR : Erreur: Erreur pendant la communication avec le lecteur électronique
(it means : error while communicating with the ereader)

database disk image is malformed

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/prst1/driver.py", line 181, in books
DatabaseError: database disk image is malformed
I've rebooted my devices several times but no luck
I'm on Mac OSX 10.8.2

Thanks a lot for your help !

You need to delete the books.db file on your reader, disconnect the reader, it will be rebuilt automatically (you will lose bookmarks/last read position info).

Thank you, it works fine now
I think it's caused by OSX with the way it manages the external disks, specially with spotlight or other services.
I've tried on Windows, I have no problem at all.

Thank you for this great software !
