Calibre Filenames and Sony PRS-650

Hi there,

I have a question (or perhaps a request?) ...

First my setup:

- I use a Sony PRS-650 which is able to "sort by filename"
- I use Calibre to fill the Sony because I LOVE the way Calibre puts my books in Collections based on "Series" and "Tags"
- My books get their meta-data edited to only include the book name in "title" (no series information) - and I want it to stay that way


Now my question:

Is there any way to get calibre to "export" my files directly to my Sony using the following convention (and still put them in collections like before)?

Author - Series - Series Index - Name of the book - anything calibre needs to identify


Why I would like this:

If something like this is possible, I could make "collections" by using tags (For example "English" - "Deutsch" - "Rollins, James") and use "sort by filename" to put everything inside one collection in a logical order (well - logical for me) - Series would be in order, single books by the same author would be at the right place etc.)


Is there any way to do what I would like?

Moved to correct forum.

Take a look at preferences->sending books to device. You can enter the path and filename of books using the Calibre template language. For what you want, you'll probably want to use something like
Code:
{authors} - {series|| - }{series_index|| - }{title}

Hello Manichean,

thanks for the "push" into the right forum and for your help!!

For everybody interested, this is what I found working for me:

{author_sort}/{authors} - {series} {series_index:0>2s} - {title}

You should note, though, that your template has no conditional formatting for series, that is, if no series information is present, your books will get a filename of, for example, "John Smith - - A Book". This may or may not be a problem for you.

you have a point !

Any idea how to fix it? because when I tried the solution you gave above (copy and past) that did not work ... what are those || ment to be? Perhaps they did not copy correct?

Really appreciate your help

Those do the conditional formatting. If you change your template to
Code:
{author_sort}/{authors}{series| - |} {series_index:0>2s} - {title}
it should work.

What exactly didn't work when you tried the example I posted earlier? What filenames did you get?

Hi Manichean,

with your first line I get:

Author - Title


with your second line I get:

Author Series_index - Title


Meanwhile I stumbled upon:

{author_sort}/{authors} - {series}{series_index:0>2s| - | - }{title}

That seems to work, but gives

Author - Series - Series_index - Title


I find no way to eliminate the - between Series and Series-index ...

Ah, my bad. The syntax is a little different in one detail than I remembered:
Code:
{author_sort}/{authors}{series:| - |} {series_index:0>2s} - {title}
