Anyone have any other suggestions?
Calibre does let you edit tags directly on the device as long as you have it set to Manual Management under Preferences - Add/Save - Send to device.
Of course if you set it to Automatic Management and keep your tags under control, then deleting 200 and resending them only takes a couple of minutes.
Hopefully someone can shed some light on your problem. I am curious what version of calibre you are using and what your Metadata Management, under Preferences - Add/Save - Send to device, is set to?
