Error communicationg with device

I have used successive versions of Calibre for about 8 months with Windows XP & my Kindle 2. Now with version 6.45 & Windows 7, Calibre still recognizes my Kindle, but I cannot transfer books to it. I receive this error:
Error communicating with device

You're trying to send the book to the storage card which the K2 does not have. Click the down arrow next to "Send to Device" and set the default location to the main memory.

Good advice that might help someone else.

The OP figured his error 5 minutes after he posted this in another thread but must have forgot he posted this or surely he would have done the courteous thing and updated this post.

Error Communication with Device

Thanks for the help! After I posted my question, a list of related links appeared & I found a helpful one. This seems to be a common problem, but many replies I saw did not seem to apply.
