So I've discovered what I need to do in order for Calibre to be able to open the database when the Kobo has a Micro SD card inserted.

1. Delete the 'metadata.calibre' file on the Micro SD card.

2. Eject the mounted Kobo device and Micro SD card from the iMac.

3. Reboot the iMac.

4. Connect the Kobo (with Micro SD card inserted) to the iMac.

5. Run Calibre.

And now Calibre will open the database.

Subsequently, if I quit Calibre and eject the mounted Kobo device and Micro SD card from the iMac, when I re-connect the Kobo and run Calibre, then Calibre cannot open the database.

To get it to once again open the database I have to go through the above procedure, exactly.

The deleting of the the 'metadata.calibre' file on the Micro SD card might be a clue; if I go through the same procedure but don't delete the 'metadata.calibre' file from the Micro SD card then when I run Calibre it cannot open the database.

Also, the iMac must be rebooted else the procedure doesn't work either.

Merry Christmas!
