Kobo Firmware no longer compatible

Asked by Norma Price

I recently had an update to the Kobo Aura Firmware and now I get the following message:

calibre, version 6.26.0
WARNING: Failed: Kobo database version unsupported - See details

Your Kobo is running an updated firmware/database version. As calibre does not know about this updated firmware, database editing is disabled, to prevent corruption. You can still send books to your Kobo with calibre, but deleting books and managing collections is disabled. If you are willing to experiment and know how to reset your Kobo to Factory defaults, you can override this check by right clicking the device icon in calibre and selecting "Configure this device" and then the "Attempt to support newer firmware" option. Doing so may require you to perform a Factory reset of your Kobo.

Discussion of any new Kobo firmware can be found in the Kobo forum at MobileRead. This is at https://www.mobileread.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=223.

Device database version: 174.
Device firmware version: 4.38.21908

Is there possibly a patch?

Your help is greatly appreciated

Sounds similar. I'd post on there to say it's still an issue

Can you help with this problem?
