Error communicating with device(Kobo Wireless)/database disk image is malformed

I am using a Kobo Wireless, software version 1.7.1 (r20207) and calibre version 0.7.56 on Windows Vista. I do not use the Kobo desktop software (crap) and only use calibre to add books and organize my ebook library.
I am receiving this error:

Error communicating with device


database disk image is malformed

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 64, in run
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 317, in _books
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\kobo\driver.py", line 230, in books
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\kobo\driver.py", line 690, in sync_booklists
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\kobo\driver.py", line 538, in update_device_database_collections
DatabaseError: database disk image is malformed

I received this error after adding 20 or so books (epubs) and ejecting and unplugging. After waiting for the device to load the new content (during which I walked away for a bit), I noticed none of the new books were there and the book I was reading was gone from the I'm Reading section of my Kobo Wireless.
This error happpened to me last year on an older, non wireless version and I received great help. I wish I remembered how to fix it. I searched this forum and cannot seem to find straight forward instructions on how to fix this.
Thank you so much for any help....I'm lost without my ereader!

Perhaps it's best to update to the latest firmware version 1.9.
