Metadata only for few file?

Hi, i have a Kindle 3 (kindle keyboard) and i have imported with calibre some books. I have modified metadata to fill missing info and {series_index:0>2s|[|] - }{title} into metadata plugboard. At last, Kindle Collection plugin to create collection.
But, when i restart kindle, some books doesn't have title in plugboard format. I tried to modify and resend book but nothing....
For these books kindle read different metadata from those of calibre...
where i wrong?

PS: Sorry for my english...

Strange, this is the plugboard i use {series:|| }{series_index:0>2s|[|] - }{title}

Have you got it set for any format, any device.
Does your plugboard work on any of your books?

I'm sure someone more knowledgable than me will be along soon to help you out, one more thing to try would be to, delete the books from your kindle with Calibre/ Eject and unplug then do a Restart, then reload.

There may be some funky things going on with the Cache.

Good luck

I don't own a Kindle, but I do know that when you convert a book to mobi in the MOBI output section you have options for MOBI file type: Old, Both or New. If your mobi was converted with Both as the option then Metadata Plugboards for that book will not work. I believe you should always choose MOBI file type: Old for the K3 (see attached).

I hope this info helps you out.

Doh... how could i forget that. I was affected by it when the joint format was first implimented.

In my defence i just use AZW3 now when converting.

Have you told Calibre that your Kindle can handle azw3 files?

Go to preferences/ Plug-ins/ device interface plug-ins and find the kindle 2/3/4 etc plug in snd select customise.

Just tick AZW3 and move it up to the top if you prefer to use that over standard mobi files (if both are available).

Thank's for the help. I have solved with AZW3 format. Is it better than MOBI?
