Unhappy Error syncing with recent versions....

I've tried updating for 4 releases now, hoping it was just a small problem that would be corrected. but I cannot put anything onto my Sony PRS-500 for some time now. I keep getting this error

ERROR: Error: Error communicating with device

Could not create file /Data/media/books/The Market Ticker [Fri, 20 Nov 2009] - calibre_15617.lrf. Response code: 0xffffffd7L

My SD card is FAT 32 formated and has 235 books on it. There are no books on the internal memory since I reset the device thinking perhaps it was an error with my reader.

Any suggestions?
Currently installed 0.6.24 on Win XP SP3

thought the whole thing may be a moot point soon since my PRS-500's battery life is now measured in hours instead of days.

Nothing has changed in the calibre PRS 500 driver for a long time. That error message indicates the directory

/Data/media/books

is missing in your SONY reader main memory
