Help!! My Kobo Ereader Won't Connect to Calibre

My Kobo won't connect to calibre and I keep getting this error:


calibre, version 0.8.66
ERROR: Error: Error communicating with device

database disk image is malformed

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 83, in run
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 405, in _books
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\kobo\driver.py", line 335, in books

File "site-packages\calibre\devices\kobo\driver.py", line 683, in reset_readstatus
DatabaseError: database disk image is malformed




Any help would be well appreciated!

That means there is something wrong with the database on the Kobo Touch. The only fix is to do a factory reset.

Thanks, I guess that I'll just have to reset the whole thing...

Is there an easy way to completely back it up??

What do you want to back up?

For the Kobo books, do a sync with the desktop app or over Wifi. This will also sync bookmarks and annotations. After the reset and a sync, they will come back.

If you used ADE to put any DRM'd books on, they should still be in the ADE directory, so I don't think you need to anything.

For the other books, if they are already in calibre, there isn't anything to do, except remember what is on the device. If they aren't in calibre, just attach the device and copy them off using Explorer.
