Book titles displaying wrong...

Hi, I'm having a issue with book titles on my sony reader displaying incorrectly.

Here's a example:

1632 <<-- Correct title
1633 <<-- Correct title
<jf2>CHAPTER ONE<cm>_The a... <<<--- Screwed up
A_Deeper_Blue <<-- Correct title
ABOUT THE AUTHOR <<<--- Screwed up
Ashes of Victory <<-- Correct title

As you can see some of them display properly and some don't.

How would I go about correcting this? The book showing as "<jf2>CHAPTER ONE<cm>_The a..." is actually a book called "Bardic Voices". The actual file name is "Bardic Voices.rtf"


Any help is appreciated.


Thanks,
Greg

The proper title for book 1 is The Lark and the Wren. The series is called Bardic Voices. Now that being said, you can get this book from Baen books at http://www.baen.com/library/defaultTitles.htm in a format you can either run HTML2LRF on or load into Book Designer. You will end up with a much better read that way. RTF is usable on the Reader, but LRF reads better when properly formatted.

When you go to the above URL, click authors then click Mercedes Lackey and you can then scroll down to find the link to go to the download page for this free book.

Thanks for the information.

But is there any way to "bulk edit" around 200 files?

Basically, most of the authors names are wrong on the files and I'd like to fix this and change some of the titles that are screwed up.

But, I'd rather not have to edit 200 seperate files.

The Sony Reader uses a meta tag inside the RTF file for title and author. Even using the tag editor in Windows Explorer will not work as this does not place the information inside the file as a meta tag. I have also tried libprs500 and that will only edit tags within its own database. The only way I know of is to edit each file.

But still, no way to bulk edit them. They'll have to be edited one at a time.

Any sort of batch editor world still have to get the correct meta-data from somewhere. libprs500 is probably the best shot.

Is Libprs500 changing the meta data of the files or is it changing it as it sends the file to the Sony like it does with LRF files? Because if you want to use Connect, then Libprs500 may not be what you want to use.

both. when sending to the device it changes the metadata in the device database. when using rtf-meta it changes the file metadata. the new gui will have the ability to do bulk metadata edits.
