Moving collection to SD card on PRS-500

Hi

I've been using Calibre with my PRS-500 for a while now, and I finally have a library big enough that it's too big for the onboard memory. As I have a 1gb SD card, I've decided to use that to store my library from now on.

However, when I've tried to move across my collection, it doesn't transfer any of my series tags, so all my books are just listed individually, which is a bit of a mess. I've noticed that there's no columns for series in the device windows either, and although there's a tag column, calibre isn't moving across the tag details either.

Have I missed a setting, or is there another way to move this info across? It worked when I was using the onboard memory, so I'm a bit confused as to why it won't now.

Not on my system.

I have started putting books that I do not want in collections on the external drive, and collections on the internal one.
