calibre will not connect to itunes

I had no problem when I first started using Calibre. I could connect to itunes and put books in my Kindle too. Today, I downloaded the newer version 0.8.32 and went to connect to itunes and it tells me this:

ERROR: Error: Error communicating with device

Can't get terminology for application (aem.Application(u'/Data File/Alex Backup/Applications (Mac OS 9)/iTunes/iTunes')): Command failed: Application isn't running. (-600)

Traceback (most recent call last):

RuntimeError: Can't get terminology for application (aem.Application(u'/Data File/Alex Backup/Applications (Mac OS 9)/iTunes/iTunes')): Command failed: Application isn't running. (-600)

I am running OS 10.7.2. I did do a back up of my son's laptop (Alex) and he has songs in my itunes but my name appears in itunes when I open it and have no trouble synching my ipad/iphone. All my preferences both in itunes and in calibre are as indicated here.

Hope someone can help. Thanks.

Try launching iTunes before launching calibre.

If that doesn't work, try reinstalling iTunes.

I tried the first but that didn't work. I haven't tried to re-install itunes....am afraid to. I have a tech guy that takes care of my imac and I'll ask him about this problem after the new year. I found that I can still install the books in itunes by downloading them from calibre to a folder and then dragging them to itunes. Not the preferred way but at least I can use that method until he figures it out. Thanks.
