problems w/ meta information in .4.98

Hi guys, hope you can help, every time i fetch info (isb, publisher, anything or a cover) i losse the text or book file dont know why, eg: in my library i have The Crying of lot 49 by Thomas Pynchon, in the inspector below it shows the path
Users/Jo/dsktop/Pynchon_Thomas/The Crying of lot 49
Formats: TXT, LRF
Comments None
Tags None

After fetching any data or adding the image i get this

Users/Jo/dsktop/Pynchon_Thomas/The Crying of lot 49
Formats: NONE
Comments None
Tags None

When searching the folder I in fact find that there is NOTHING there, anybody´s got any ideas or the same problem,? thanks a lot

uh, sorry, im using it in a mac on leopard

hi kovid, just fetch metadata when mannualy editing theres no trouble
edit: rechecked yup i can edit everything manually , adding images from my hard drive , modyfing publisher , author , etc, the ¨erasing¨occurs when fetching data from the web ( both in isbndb or the other one)

that's strange. what happens if you open the eidt metadata dialog, change both the title and author and then click OK
