Calibre conversion - Book title Editing

I have converted some books to MOBI format and I have edited the title in Calibre to indicate book number in a series. Kindle doesn't show the the book number.

Example

Naked in Death
changed to
In Death 01 - Naked in death only shows 'Naked in Death'

Is Kindle picking up the title from elsewhere?

Rather than editing titles, why not look at PlugBoards in calibre to automate the renames based on title / series / series_index etc.

See http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=118563 for examples
