Synch calibre library and Kindle?
I originally posted the following in the Devices forum but got on replies so I'm re-posting it here to see if anyone here knows.
What criteria does calibre use for determining if a book on the Kindle is the same as one stored in the calibre library?
Does calibre synchronise changes made to metadata of books in the calibre library to the book on the Kindle when it is connected via USB?
Thanks for your help.

As far as I know Calibre does a match on the Title/Author combination. Therefore changing these in any way within Calibre will break the comparison with books already on the Kindle.
In terms of synching, there is no automated synching facility within Calibre. It is up to you to send changed books to the Kindle. You may find the Reading List plugin to be of use in the area of tracking what should be on the Kindle.
