Angry Need help with original Kobo and Calibre 0.8.26

I just upgraded Calibre to 0.8.26 and now I keep getting error reading device when I hook up my Kobo (original Kobo, not touch). On the 3rd, it dumped all of my books but they finally returned. I prefer adding my books with Calibre over Adobe Digital Editions but it looks like I can not use it. I plugged the Kobo in 3 different USB ports in case they were a problem.

Have you tried a Windows chkdsk (in Windows Explorer, right click on the Kobo's drive letter, select Properties and then Tools, and finally Error-Checking).

No, but I will. I know a few times after I got this message, it automatically ran a disk check on it when I plugged it in the next time.

Have you tried going back to an older version of Calibre?

I've been thinking about doing just that. It seems like everything I do an update on Calibre, I have trouble with it.

Just to clarify things. Is that the original Kobo or the Kobo WiFi? I ask just in case that's relevant.

I jumped off the Calibre upgrade bus with 0.7.58. Does everything I need and works perfectly with my original kobo.
