Metadata Plugboard doesn't work for mobi files

I use metadata plugboard '{series:|| }{series_index:0>2s|[|] - }{title}' to title for epub and mobi for any device. When I send epub files to disk, the title can insert series in front of the title, but for mobi the file will sent without the series in front of the title.
Please someone help me how to make this plugboard works for mobi files also.

If you have Mobi files with both ".mobi" and ".prc" extensions, you need two plugboard entries, one for each extension. You also need to ensure that the device setting is correct.

Are you looking at the books as displayed on the Kindle's Home page or are you just looking at the filename generated?

A Plugboard that modifies the {title} affects the metadata, and thus Home page display, only. It does not affect the filename.

If you want the filename altered you need to make that customization in Preferences' "Send to Disk" and/or "Send to Device" sections.

Actually the file extension is .mobi, and after send to disk the file side loaded to kindle, the title still don't change. (I'm looking at the kindle homepage)
But if I do the same to epub, the title will include series name.
I will try to repeat the same procedure on the other pc later.

I also use a plugboard with MOBI files regularly.

I use the following "Save Template" in "Save to Disk":
{series} {series_index:0>2s} {title} - {authors}

I use the following Plugboard for both "content_server" and "save_to_disk"
{series} {series_index:0>2s} {title} assigned to the field {title}
{author_sort} assigned to the field {author}

I tried on other pc, and I know the problem, I used Stanza for open the file, for .epub it's showed the title updated, but for .mobi Stanza show title without series, I think Stanza didn't use metada for title.

Now I'm slightly confused. In your post above, you said that you were looking at the title on the Kindle home page? The Kindle definitely does display the title from the metadata, not the filename.

Sorry, the first try I use Stanza and side load to Kindle with different library, the one without Metadata Plugboards for Mobi (I have more than one library with calibre) and metadata plugboards doesnt work for all library, you must set metadata plugboards for each library.
