Best way to import B&N Library?

I used to have a Nook v1 along with a collection of epubs from various stores and free sources I have about 100 books in my B&N account. I sold the Nook almost a year ago and had been using my iPad to read but have decided I really prefer e-ink and have a Kobo Glo on the way.

What is the best way to import the B&N books into Calibre? I have the B&N desktop app and by refreshing it downloaded all the epubs from B&N into a local directory. I then did a mass import into Calibre but they all came in under the cryptic filename that B&N uses and I can't download any metadata or covers. Please tell me there is an easier way then manually editing the metadata in Calibre!

Thanks

Unless you've googled "Apprentice Alf", the books are probably all DRM protected and there's little that calibre can do with the files.

That's not entirely true. There are quite a few DRM-free books for sale at B&N. Unfortunately there is absolutely no indication of that, so you would still need to feed everything through Alf's tools anyway.
