PRS-500 Error loading to main memory

I have a Sony PRS-500. When I try to load a file to it from Calibre specifying Main Memory as the target I am getting the following:
Code:
Job: **Upload 1 books to device:Full Moon Rising**
**PathError**: Could not create file /Data/media/books/Full_Moon_Rising_-_Keri_Arthur_1840.lrf. Response code: 0xffffffd7L
**Traceback**:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "calibre\gui2\device.pyo", line 20, in run
File "calibre\gui2\device.pyo", line 141, in _upload_books

'
Any ideas on how to resolve this? Should I be raising a ticket or is it a known issue?

Strangly enough if I specify the storage card as the target I get no problem reported. I was also earlier able to delete files from main memory using Calibre.

I wanted to use main memory as I believe that on the PRS-500 Collections are only supported using Main memory - not the Storage card. If this is not correct perhaps someone could mention it.

I am using Windows XP SP3 and Calibre 0.4.120.

ffffd7 indicates a path not found error, which likely means that the folder structure of your internal memory is corrupted. You can try to recreate /Data/media/books with

prs500 mkdir /Data/media
prs500 mkdir /Data/media/books

Thanks - the command to re-create the books folder seems to have done the trick (the first one failed saying the folder already existed).

Just for interest, every time I ran the prs500 command I got a message stating

C:\Program Files\calibre\library.zip\calibre\devices\prs500\p rstypes.py:173: DeprecationWarning: struct integer overflow masking is deprecated

though the command seemed to execute OK
