Thanks for your explanation.

I don't care filenames if Kindle lists the books by their metadata. Since, I read a lot of pdf and txt files on my Kindle, and it seems that Kindle ignore the metadata of a txt files too.

PS. Because a Pinyin word could stands for a lots of Chinese Characters, it is difficult for Chinese to read a book in Pinyin filename.

For instance, the Pinyin book name "Wei Cheng" might stands for "围城 未成 卫城 渭城 伟成 危城 伪称 维城 ...".
