File Name is stuck

Hey all,

Earlier today I moved all my books (adobe digitals, B&N downloads, ones downloaded from other locations) into the "my documents" folder on my Nook so I could have everything in one location.

It was more or less a success. But a handful of titles are displaying odd names or refusing metadata edits via Calibre. I'll load the files into Calibre, edit their data, upload the changed file into my nook/delete the old file, but the change doesn't seem to take effect.

I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice here.

Have you tried turning your nook off and turning it back on?

I have, to no avail.

The odd thing is, some name changes worked while others didn't.

Have you tried resetting it back to factory specs. I don't have a nook but I have read enough about it to know there is a way to reset it.

At least the B&N downloads should remain in "My library", else you mess up thumbnails and the likes.

Well, I'm not to worried about the thumbnails. I just prefer to have all my books in one location. Out of roughly 200 books, only 7 or so are refusing to format the names properly. I think 6 out of the 7 are B&N downloads.
