Thanks for the reply...
I did originally transfer the files with my iPad connected through calibre but it was taking too long, 50 books took about 30 mins, drag & drop was much faster through iTunes , I thought that the file in my calibre library after my conversion would be free of the tags that I deleted in the meta editor...
