Metadata from Calibre not showing up on books in Nook ST

I just got a Nook Simple Touch for Christmas and I have only had Calibre for a couple weeks now so I am very new to this. I have edited the metadata in books that are part of a series and edited tags. When I add the books into my Nook Simple touch the metadata for each book is not showing up. I have tried and re-tried with no luck. I noticed on my Nook in "my files" the driveinfo.calibre and the metadata.calibre cannot be read by the Nook. Could this be the problem? And how do I fix this?

those 2 file are made by and for Calibre use only.

It is important the the book and templates resolve to unique names or the device may consider them duplicates.

Nooks dont have support for series and tags metadata. You can root your Nook I believe the alternate firmware does.

I have read that other people that have a Nook Touch can add the series info to the title through the metadata plugboards and have the info transferred to the Nook. Does it not work that way then? So I should just use the Shelves option in Nook....I was really hoping for Calibre to be the one place to store ALL my books and be able to know what book in a series comes next with out having to go to my computer to look it up

You can certainly use a plugboard to put the series into the title. But that makes it a part of the title, not a separate piece of metadata.

I have done that and it is still not showing up in the title...do I have to add the series information to the actual title itself in the "edit metadata" area? That may be why it is not showing up.....
