PRS-T1 sony E books retitling problem!

I've purchased this reader and having problem, when importing books from my PC (using PC reader software). Titles of the books are automatically renamed in my reader (for example, if book is called "Confucius.pdf", ebook shows me "Ramanuja"). How is that? How is it possible to rename books yourself, because I can't find this option in my ebook reader, nor can i do that efectively on my PC.

The Sony reader uses the metadata of the books. So, I think the title of your book is not corresponding with the metadata.

If you want more control over your metadata, consider using Calibre as your library management tool. You can also use it to put books on the reader.

You can rename books by changing the title entries in the book.db database.

I would suspect that the title and author have gotten swapped in the metadata the reader uses the metadata title not the filename... for the title...as already suggested calibre will allow you to edit the metadata
