.LIT to EPUB Problem

Hi,
I have used Calibre to convert pdf, mobi and txt files to epub, but when I recently tried to convert some .lit files it changed on the Calibre interface on the PC, but as soon as I tried to copy them to my android device they revert to the incorrect meta data and cover page.

Has anyone else found this problem and found a way to fix it?

Did you Save to Disk or Send to device?

Copying from the Library leaves the file as it existed when converted.
If your Metadata was stale at conversion time , that is what is in that file.
Sending updates the copy ONLY

Thanks for the fast response. I downloaded and edited the metadata, downloaed correct covers, and all looks fine in the Calibre interface, tried copying from the calibre library folder directly onto the TF card then importing into Aldiko, title, metadata and cover same as original .lit file. Is there any way arounf this?

Well I managed to sort it out. Aldiko keeps the book covers in a different folder on the android, and they did not delete when I deleted the books from aldiko. Once they were manually deleted the converted books imported fine.
