So I will edit the text of a book in the original odt, add or change a tag or series in Calibre, convert the new improved version of the book in Calibre, and then connect the Sony to charge and to add books etc. So I was thinking that Calibre would spot that the tags etc have changed on a book and update the tags on the Sony thereby causing the old book to have the new tags until the book itself is manually resent. Not a great problem but I thought I would clarify the situation.

If a book in my library is newer than the book on my Sony it is often due to the fact that I like to play with the conversion especially when trying to get dropcaps, images, and such to look good. I DEFINITELY would worry about an option that automatically updated a book merely because it was 'newer'.

Newer can equal testing.
