Importing books into iTunes after calibre conversion

Apologies in advance if this is dealt with in another thread. I did a search, but got nothing. Perhaps my google-fu is weak! If this is the case, please point me to the right area

I have books from a previous reader, which calibre has changed into epubs for me. I've figured out the secret codes (lol) which enable me to have the title displayed the way I want, as the file name. For example:

series01 - book title.epub
(This is inside the folder "author name")

should end up as:

series01 - book title
author name

next....

However when I try to import them into iTunes to load onto my iPad, it drops the series name. This makes it difficult to tell what books should be read in what order..I have also tried using "(series01)book title" and "Series01(book title)" etc. It always drops the series, and only loads the title in.

What I actually get is:

book title
author name

How can I remedy this? What setting in iTunes will allow it to find the WHOLE title not just a portion of it? I REALLY need the book series as well as the title...

Thanks for any help on this

Probably need to ask over in the Calibre Support section, even though it's partially an iTunes question.

The file name normally has nothing to do with how it is displayed in ereader software. It is based on the metadata in the file (author, title, etc.) Most reader software only supports title and author, so you need to use title naming conventions that have the series in it. Like "My Series 12 - End of the World" for the title.
