Calibre Sony PRST1 Collections

New to this whole Calibre thang.
I created a new hierarchical column named genre
I set up my books with the new column i.e. SciFi.Aszimov.Foundation
All works fine in the tags browsing etc.
I added an save template as follows to convert the column periods to slashes:
{#genre:re(\.,/)}/{title}
If I save a book to disk, the directory structure is created as expected.
SciFi/Azimov/Foundation/bookname
I created the same 'Save template' to my device configuration options.
(Use sub directories is checked)
If I save to device, the book is saved to the reader in the directory:
Sony_Reader/media/books/SciFi/Azimov/bookname
When I disconnect, the book appears in the reader, but no collections ?
I've deleted the books.db file, reset the device etc.
The whole idea is to create collections within sub collections. What am I missing?
Thanks. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Firstly - the Sony does not care about the directory structure you keep your books in. The directory structure Save template is unrelated to Sony Collections definition.

Secondly - Collections are set in the Sony PRST1 device interface driver, Prefs - Plugins - Device Interface - SONY PRS-T1 - Customize plugin in the box labeled 'Comma separated list of metadata fields ...', namely the box below the Save template box. If you want to use a custom column, such as your new genre column it needs a # in front, i.e. #genre. A standard calibre column doesn't need the #, e.g. tags

Thirdly - I'm not sure that the PRST1 even supports nested Collections. However, I've never used nested Collections myself, so I could be wrong.
