Adding multiple books missed metadata 4.131

Windows Vista, Calibre 0.4.131.

When I add multiple books (mobi format), either by selecting multiple titles on the single directory option or when I add from multiple directories, the titles don't always include all metadata.

If I add the same titles individually, it works as expected.

No error messages during the add.

Thanks,

Bob

Hmm is it always the same book? In ither words if you select

book1, book2, book3 and book2's metadatada is not read and then if you select book2,book4,book5 is it book2 again or some other book?

It turns out I had one file in the directory that was DRM'd. And this time, starting with a fresh library, I got an error message (below)

Without the DRM'd file, all the files added successfully into a new library.

Here's the error when the directory included a .prc with DRM:

[Error 123] The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect: u'C:\\calibre\\library\\Unknown\\\xd0\x12\xdd\xe0I \xec\xc1i\x1e\xd5\u2019g\x14\xcc\xb9\x03\xe2\xe8\x cc\xc9f0E_p\xca\xcc\x01h\xa5T\u203a (8)'
