Sending books with same Title and Author to PRS-T1 device

I have started sending selected stories/books to my device. However, I ran into a problem when I tried to send two stories that had the same title and same author to the device. Even though they have the same title and author, they are part of different series by the author and are different stories/books. When I try to send the one which isn't on the device, the previous one gets erased.

Is there a way to send both books to the device?

Since the file name of the book on the device is based on its title and author, no. If you have some other metadata that is different for each of those entries you could change the send to device template to use that metadata instead/in addition to title/author.

Using your message as a guide, I changed the send to device template so that it now has the series included. I placed this in the send to device and in the save template under the plugin for my device.

My template is {author_sort}/{series}/{series_index}{title} - {authors}

It seems to work. However, I am getting an error when calibre tries to 'send metadata to device'. I get this error message:
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 83, in run

I don't know if this is the cause, but the immediate question is, with the template:

{author_sort}/{series}/{series_index}{title} - {authors}

What happens if there is no series and hence no series index? You might want to try the following:

{author_sort}/{series}{series_index:0>2s| - | - }{title} - {authors}

I suspect that will solve it, but you will lose the extra folder.

That message says that calibre asked your computer's OS for some memory and the OS said "no, you can't have it". There isn't much that calibre can do at that point.

My guess is that you have large programs running and that your computer's "virtual memory" is full. The easiest way to test this is to stop some of these other programs. If that fixes the problem, then you need to take the appropriate steps on your computer to increase its available virtual memory. How to do that depends on which OS and version you are running.

@chaley: I wasn't using any other programs other than a couple firefox screens. So I didn't think that was my issue. Thanks though.

@davidfor: That seemed to fix the problem. I did fiddle with how the series index is shown{author_sort}/{series}{series_index:0>5.2f| - | - }{title} - {authors}. Thanks.
