Unhappy Calibre 0.6.29 for a PRS 500

Version 0.6.29 is what I understand to be the best version to use with the PRS 500. However, I get the typical "no device connected" error. Here is my debug info:

Version: 0.6.29
USB devices on system:
[u'usb\\root_hub&vid8086&pid27cb&rev0002',
u'usb\\root_hub&vid8086&pid27c9&rev0002',
u'usb\\root_hub&vid8086&pid27ca&rev0002']
Drives detected:
(ID, Partitions, Drive letter)
('IDE\\DISKHITACHI_HTS545016B9A300________________ _PBBOC60F\\4&1BE3E953&0&0.0.0', 'No mount points found')
