Hi there, I have Kobo Touch with firmware 1.9.10. I've installed Calibre version 0.8.19. on Windows Vista. Originally it works fine. After a few days, I have experienced the following communication error

When does the error appear, on Calibre startup or when you're moving books to/from the device?

I believe I had this error for a bit as well. If I'm not mistaken doing a Factory Restore on your Kobo should fix this.
