When I click on "device" "show books in main memory of device" I see books that are on my kindle. Some of them have a green checkmark next to them to indicate they are in the main library. I go to one of the ones that are not in my main library, right click on it, and select "add books to library" and I get "books with the same title ... already exist in the database. Add them anyway?". So what's going on - either they are in the main library or they are not?!?!? If they are, why don't I see the checkmark? If I agree to add them anyway, I end up with duplicates on my main library! I have the latest version of Calibre - I always keep it completely up-to-date.
This may have something to do with the metadata - and if so, is there an easy way to force the metadata between these 2 lists to synchronize, without wasting a lot of time comparing all the items in it one by one and fixing them to be the same?

My thought is to start from scratch. Delete everything off the Kindle, and move all of your books in Calibre to the Kindle.
