Angry Renaming File Problem...

Okay I bought a PRS-505 and then my Professor posted something on his Moodle that was a PDF file and contained some works by Jean-Paul Marat.

I want to review that information on my PRS-505.

He's posted 12 more PDF files like it and I want to have them grouped together.

Problem is whenever I rename the file on my computer the file's actual name is some weird words...

Does anyone know how to change the display name of a book on the PRS?

What software are you using to put books on your Reader?

Pdf files have two kinds of name infomation, "Filename" and "Title".

"Title" seems to have the priority to display names of files on PRS-505.

"PDF Explorer" can chage these.

I recomend you to backup files before you change.

I've noticed this when I create PDF ebooks using StarOffice/OpenOffice.org. If I leave the title in the file properties blank, then the file name appears in the library and on my reader. However, when I enter something in the title field that appears as the name of the ebook regardless of the filename. This has the advantage that I can put characters in the book's title not possible with file names (such as not allowed characters like the *).
