Unhappy What Happened? - Literati Problem

Ever since the new update 0.7.044 Calibre does not recognize my literati (kindle clone). It says

[Errno 13] Permission denied: u'E:\\.metadata.calibre'

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 64, in run
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 307, in _books
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\usbms\driver.py", line 164, in books
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\usbms\driver.py", line 305, in sync_booklists
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\usbms\driver.py", line 303, in write_prefix
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: u'E:\\.metadata.calibre'

It also doesn't show the books I transferred to my device on my device.

I have windows 7, I tried deleting the metadata. calibre on device but system won't let me even though I am the aministrator

It use to work fantastic now it is nada

The permission denied is an OS level error message. It sounds as if you need to run a CHKDSK command to check the Kindle file system for errors.

barbieofborg,

I am experiencing a similar problem. When the literati is plugged into a computer via a USB cord the only thing displayed on the literati screen is a message that the USB cord is plugged into the computer, and the device should be ejected prior to disconnecting. Thus, as I look at your four step solution several questions come to mind.
1. Are you copying the “mybooks” from the literati drive as it is displayed on your computer?
2. Do you press the reset button with the USB plugged in to the computer? Probably, “Yes.”
3. Do you then copy “mybooks” from your computer back to the literati “disk” in the My Computer list under “Devices with removable storage?”

Hopefully, you will be alerted to this message, and have an opportunity to respond.

Many thanks,

fogstratus
