Moving collections from PC to Kindle Keyboard

Hi, I'm moving my collection of books over to empty kindle 3 (WiFi keyboard)
The collection is on a PC and numbers about 2,500 books in many directories,
named for content type.

I've tried to send over the first category (Non-Fiction 1) and create a category
of the same name. Then I moved over the second batch from a directory
(Non-Fiction 2).

Here is where the problem begins, In creating the second category, -ALL- the
books appear as possible to select for the second category, and there is no
indication of which are already in category 1.

This problem will continue to get worse, as there are over a dozen directories.

At the very top of the main menu does your Kindle say "Showing All xxx Items........By Most Recent First (or Title)? Click on that line and tab right until you can select Collections. Once your Kindle is sorted to display Collections, then only new books which are not yet in a collection will appear as individual titles after the list of Collections.
