From reading I thought you just edited meta and put the collection name as a tag. That didn't work
1. Use only Calibre or the Sony Library software. Mixing the two never works.

2. Try reformatting your Sony Reader memory or card where the books are and then using Calibre to add the books onto the reader. Now the metadata tags should show up as collections

3. Make sure you have all your preferences sorted in Calibre
a. check the "sending to device" preference panel to make sure Calibre automatically manages the metadata
b. check the "advanced" prefs and look at your "plugin" for the Sony Reader - click on customize and look to see if "tags" is a value in the area to make collections on the device.
