Question about 'database disk image is malformed'
I encountered this error today, and am not sure the cause. Hopefully you'll be able to give me some guidance.
I installed the latest (9.27) version
I downloaded a library book (Adobe DRM)
I downloaded Adobe Digital Editions
I didn't know what to do, so I put imported the book into Calibre and tried to add it to my device (Kobo Glo)
I got a message saying that my device wasn't authorized for Adobe DRM
I opened ADE, and authorized my device
I restarted ADE, Calibre, and my device many, many times trying to figure out why it was not working
I tried copying the book onto the device in File Manager (still didn't work)
I removed it
I uninstalled Calibre and reinstalled an earlier version (the one I was previously on)
I removed the book and metadata from Calibre completely, and re-imported it
I deauthorized my device from ADE. I reauthorized it.
I can't think of anything else to do.
ADE seems to now think that the book is on my device, and Calibre doesn't show me anything, and gives me this error. I can't find the book on my device and just want this to work.
Any advice would be helpful. Thanks.

This is a Kobo damage DB (caused) error. Calibre can't work with damaged DB's (Kobo or any others)
There should be a Kobo menu item to cause it to be rebuilt
