adding names

I have, in Windows 7 "Documents", a list of book titles in the form of title, author. When transferred to Calibre, the titles are shown ok but the author column shows "Unknown". How do I get Calibre to show the full path of title and author?. Thank you

Give us an exact file name as an example.

Also under Preferences - Adding books do you have "Read metadata from file contents rather than file name" checked? If it is checked it will ignore the file name and use any existing metadata in the file to come up with the title and author.
