Problem recognising Sony 500

Hi - just a quick heads-up to say I had a problem which might (or might not) indicate an issue with the latest download of Calibre - things were okay at first, then when I plugged the Sony into my machine (a mac) it wouldn't recognise the reader. I tried restarting, but no luck.

I got an error dialogue as follows:

PacketError: 'calibre.devices.prs500.prstypes.Answer packets must have a length of atleast 16 bytes. Got initializer of 8 bytes.
Failed to perform job: Get metadata from device
Further device related error messages will not be shown while this message is visible.
Detailed traceback:
Traceback (most recent call last):

A reboot should fix that.

Yeah, it started working a little while later, though I didn't do anything really. Go figure.
