Changing file names / Book titles and authors
Hi! I'm a first time poster - I'm sorry if this isn't the correct forum. I've had my Sony prs-950 for about a month now and I absolutely love it. There are just a few little bugs that drive me crazy - the most irritating of all are the file names of all my e-books.
For the most part, my e-books were not purchased through the Sony E-reader store. Most of them are PDF's from work and other files. For some reason, the titles are all messed or missing completely - is there a way to rename files on the e-reader itself? How about on my computer before uploading the files? Because I have so many documents on my e-reader without any titles, it takes me a very long time to find the actual document I'm looking for.
Thanks for your help!

and welcome to MR.
Regarding the PDF-Files:
Sony extracts the META-Info of (every e-boook) file and uses this for title and author.
AFAIK there is no way to do anything against this directly on the reader.
So you have to "pre-process" the files on your PC.
Even if there are some free programs to change PDF-Meta-info like here I figured out for myself that most of them are messing up the resulting files, so I stick with Acrobat for this task.
Just checked with calibre: It's doing well.
