ERROR - database disk image malformed

When trying to connect my Kobo touch, I get the following message:

database disk image is malformed

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 82, in run
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 339, in _books
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\kobo\driver.py", line 299, in books
DatabaseError: database disk image is malformed

I've tried re-booting my Kobo, as well as installed & uninstalled Calibre many times. Any help / advice would be appreciated!

As it says... corruption on the Touch itself.

Have you tried a Windows chkdsk on it?

Final option will be to reset the Kobo and reload books onto it.
