Collections are created based on whatever you have listed in the Sony plugin (see attached). If you don't want tags creating collections just remove tags from the plugin. Also if you have it set to automatic management then every time you connect it should sync all of the collections, not just when you upgrade.

I'll let chaley address this but unless there is a bug any collection based on series column info will be in series order.

I have 4000+ books in my calibre library, but only around 300 on my device. I only have collections based on Tags (which I keep to a minimum) and Series. I don't try to get fancy with my ereader. I have an idea of what books or series I want to read next and open the collection accordingly. As long as my Series collections are in series order (and they are automatically put in order) then I'm happy.

Maybe chaley can hook you up. Or using the plugboard to adjust the title might be the way to go.

I think you speak for most of us that is why having calibre handle my collections and having the series collections automatically in order is so great.

Good Luck.
