preserving metadata on kindle 3

i have changed details in calibre to an ebook.once imported onto the kindle 3 ,it shows the old data not the new edited data ?

do i need to add the meta data along with the mobi file .

Hi hilty
1. what's the format(s) of the book which metadata you're changing ?
2. If it's mobi, and you change metadata, you have to convert the book to mobi again to get the new metadata included. ( even if it's mobi to mobi )
