Calibre (0.6.29) not recognizing PRS-500

PRS has old firmware (no epub upgrade)

I debugged the Device detection and this was the output:

Device possibly connected: PRS-500 Device Interface
Trying to open device... failed
Opening of the following devices failed
<calibre.devices.prs500.driver.PRS500 object at 0x02A6E030>
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\__init__.py", line 93, in debug
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\prs500\driver.py", line 248, in open
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\libusb.py", line 349, in get_device_by_id
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\libusb.py", line 333, in busses
Error: Could not find libusb.


I googled libusb and it appears to be some sort of open source USB drivers but i figured i would ask here just in case i am missing something stupid

yes that's why calibre only supports un-upgraded PRS 500s on 32 bit windows only.
