PDF with the wrong names

Okay whoever created some of my PDFs didn't name them properly.
When I look at them the name of the file is correct but when I load them into my PRS-505 the name of some are missing and then some have the persons file Path some even say microsoft docs etc....
Is there a way to fix this?? It drives me batty.
Thanks

Hi

Looks like your metadata are not well written.

I would suggest, before uploading the PDF file to your reader to check the metadata (title, author, various tags) of your PDF. There are several freeware to do it. Just google for them.
- BECYPDFMetaEdit
- A-PDF Info changer
- PDF Info

You also can use any of them to update your metadata.

It's probably the information in your /Info tag. You can easily change that - also with the script if you slightly adjust it.
