Calibre crashing when I load my books to the SD card

Hi Kovid,

I have a weird one for you.

I'm running Calibre 0.5.14, and I have 1,475 books currently in my library. Mobile device is a Sony PRS-505 SC. OS is Vista home premium.

All the contents of the library are in miscelaneous formats RTF, TXT, PDF, etc, but they have all been converted using your tool to have an LRF version also, and as I understand it that's all that pushes to the device.

Up to maybe 30 books ago everything ran smoothly, and if I got out of synch, I could just dump the contents of the SD card and push again.

What's happening now is that when I want to push my books to the device, I'm getting Windows App Crash messages saying Calibre has crashed and do I want to shut it down.

What I think is happening is that Calibre is just taking a little while getting organzed to push a big block of books and isnt communicating, so the system thinks it has timed out. But I could be wrong.

Event viewer reports the following message when this happens:

Faulting application calibre.exe, version, time stamp 0x4918019c, faulting module unknown, version, time stamp 0x00000000, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x66610000, process id 0x1404, application start time 0x01c9fbde16882444.

Any ideas?

Thanks a bunch for the help
