"Unable to detect PRS505 disk drive" in Linux

I've go the latest calibre -- 0.4.130

I'm on Linux 2.6.26 running debian unstable. I figured hal would be set up correct, and hal-devices output is attached. I'm getting the following output when running calibre:

cmason@aria:~$ calibre

link hasn't been detected!

link hasn't been detected!

Unable to open device

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "build/bdist.linux-i686/egg/calibre/gui2/", line 59, in detect_device

File "build/bdist.linux-i686/egg/calibre/devices/prs505/", line 236, in open

File "build/bdist.linux-i686/egg/calibre/devices/prs505/", line 195, in open_linux

DeviceError: Unable to detect the PRS505 disk drive. Try rebooting.

Looks like a permission error...but not sure where to go from here. Suggestions? Help? Much appreciated. Let me know if you need any more information.
