Question Metadata not saving for 1 book

Hey. I'm brand new to Calibre. Today I used it to update the titles for a lot of my books that I have previously downloaded from Amazon to my paperwhite. It worked great for every book, except one. For some reason, when I try to change the title of The Dark Tower V in my library, delete the old one on my kindle and copy the updated one back over, it doesn't save it for that one book. I tried restarting the kindle, downloading a different version of calibre (x64 vs windows), and redownloading the book from Amazon. I haven't had any success. Any ideas would be appreciated!

Convert the book to azw3 and send that newly converted file to the kindle.

I tried to convert it to azw3 today, but got the error it was locked by drm. I'm confused why it would save the metadata changes for every legitimately pitches book I changed with the exception of this one. Does anyone have other ideas?
