Transfer to new Kindle fails for some books

I have just upgraded my Paperwhite to the latest version and I get a error message when trying to transfer some books as follows:

calibre, version 3.25.0
ERROR: Error: Error communicating with device

[Errno 5] Input/output error: '/Volumes/Kindle/documents/May, Peter'

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages/calibre/gui2/device.py", line 87, in run
File "site-packages/calibre/gui2/device.py", line 591, in _upload_books
File "site-packages/calibre/devices/usbms/driver.py", line 314, in upload_books
File "site-packages/calibre/devices/usbms/device.py", line 1011, in create_upload_path
File "lib/python2.7/os.py", line 157, in makedirs
OSError: [Errno 5] Input/output error: '/Volumes/Kindle/documents/May, Peter'


It was no problem with the old Kindle, but now some books work and some do not. Anyone come across this before?

That's an input/output error, that means there was an error trying to create a new directory on the Kindle. This is typically a hardware issue. You can try resetting the Kindle and/or use a new usb cable/port.

Thanks. I first suspected something along those lines, but then I noticed that it failed repeatedly for the same book while it worked for others with the same connection. Maybe the file is corrupted somehow. I will try to download it again and reset Kindle if still not working.
