I checked. There's no quotation around the author's name.

In that case I'm stumped, try sending some other book to the card, does it also cause an error?

With version 0.6.21 I get the following error message:

Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\main.py", line 1779, in closeEvent
  File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\main.py", line 1677, in write_settings
  File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\main.py", line 753, in save_device_view_settings
AttributeError: 'Main' object has no attribute 'carb_b_view'
I didn't get this error with 0.6.20. Though, on my reader, everything seems to be fine.

Help!!
This error (Windows Error 82) just happened to me also. It turns out that it was the result of pushing the limits of the FAT16 format that many SD cards come preformatted with. In my case there were over 900 books when this happened.

Not knowing, I initially just tried to reformat the SD card, but hit that limit again.

Reformatting the SD card as FAT32 solved the problem.

I hope this helps others that run into this problem.

Thanks dwanthny, I had a similar problem. I reformatted to FAT32 and now it works wonderfully.
I just started using Calibre with my new Sony Touch Reader, and I'm loving it!
