Device: iPad Retina 4th gen + Marvin v2.8 & Calibre v2.9 on W7 64
Still in the soup!!!! Now stirring for the first time with newly arising "Malformed ..disk image" issue AFTER having updated Calibre 64 to v2.8 AND installing ShellShock's reworked 11/1/2014 DLL's.

1st ......MANY Thanks to ShellShock's generous work!!!! {Calibre no longer 'spits-back' the iOS reader plugin!

2nd .... Now that I can "link-up" W7 64 + Calibre v2.8 + iOS Reader v1.44 & Marvin XD v1.24 PlugIns with my iPad 4th gen retina with iOS 8.x, I am now receiving a brand new "malformed ....." exception from calibre:

calibre, version 2.8.0 [AND also v2.7]
ERROR: Error: Error communicating with device
database disk image is malformed

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\", line 87, in run
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\", line 502, in _books
File "D:\^_TEMP~1\calibre_wpwapq\5phab4_ios_local_db\Ma", line 407, in books
File "D:\^_TEMP~1\calibre_wpwapq\5phab4_ios_local_db\Ma", line 2610, in _snapshot_booklist
DatabaseError: database disk image is malformed CLOSE QUOTE"

This new [to me] "Malformed disk image" exception remains persistent despite my having tried past forum suggestions like deleting Calibre\Windows "booklist.db" file, uninstalling the Marvin & iOS PlugIns, deleting all PlugIn residuals in Windows/Calibre and then ReInstalling latest Marvin & iOS plugIns AND re-customizing each. ALL in Vain .....twice!

Can anyone point me to one or more OTHER corrective steps, beyond what I've already done as cited above, in order to resume a happy co-existence with my iPad, Calibre & Windows?
