'lo all,

The other day when I launched the Whitcoulls (NZ) desktop client it nicely told me a new version was available and downloaded 1.7.5, sadly there wasn't a nice new firmware to go along with it - so my device is still a 1.4 based unit.

However, now I find that when I try and sync with the desktop client I get:

We are unable to update your device's database. Syncing cannot be completed.

Anyone seen this before? I normally use Calibre to sync ebooks but I just purchased one from the Whitcoulls store and prefer the fonts on the Kobo version of the books than the ePub ( which I might have to settle for now... ).

There are several things that could cause this.

A couple of updates past, Calibre "broke" the Kobo Db. It has been fixed now, but folks have had to reset to factory default, or replace the sqlite and image files (see the sticky above).

Some folks have reported that their security software was not letting the desktop communicate and sync.

There have been some instances of the update to the new desktop software was pooched. The solution to that seems to be to uninstall the software. Reboot. Install it again.
