error communicating with Device

I have a Kindle 2 and Calibre can no longer communicate with the device. I receive the following error:

calibre, version 0.8.2
ERROR: Error: Error communicating with device

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

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 62, in run
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 278, in _get_device_information
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\usbms\driver.py", line 97, in get_device_information
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\usbms\driver.py", line 85, in _update_driveinfo_file
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: 'E:\\driveinfo.calibre'

I see that the driveinfo.calibre file on the device has 0 bytes. When I try to look at the file I get a CRC error. I was able to delete the file.

How can I reestablish communication between Calibre and the device?

Typically this happens when file system corruption has handled on the Kindle drive. It is normally fixed by running a disk check against that drive.
