Metadata Help - Plugboard?? (kindle on ipod touch)

Tried to find an answer by searching, but was taking wayyyyy tooo long.

So sorry if duplicating a question.

Is there any tweak I can do to calibre so that when I change the metadata on the list screen in calibre, it will change the metadata on the .mobi files?

For example: In calibre it shows:



But on my kindle app on ipod touch 4g it shows the title as:

Microsoft Word - Trials_... (as title) and Dawn (as author)

Any help is greatly appreciated, Thank you

No tweak, just use calibre the way it is designed. Metadata is updated in the mobi book using any of the below features of calibre.

Send to device
Save to disk
Conversion
Connect to folder (iTunes)
Download from content server
Email to:

Metadata is not updated if you choose to copy the files from calibre's database using any file manager. Since your metadata isn't being updated I'm guessing you aren't using calibre to export your book from calibre's database.

If you use iTunes to sync books to your iPod then the three posts in this sticky thread might help you figure out how to use the Connect to iTunes feature of calibre to get books to your iPod.

Good luck!
