Book Titles on Calibre

Book titles show up correctly on Calibre. However, some books when I transfer them to my eReader SD Card show up as Chapter One on Calibre when looking at the SD Card. However, when I look at the eReader, the book title is correct.

Whats happening?

That would be why. calibre doesn't always succeed in reading/writing metadata into PDF files correctly. I'd suggest converting them to EPUB and the problem will go away.

Or if you have to have em in PDF, just ignore the wrong titles in calibre.

I guess I could convert them to ePub since they are free ebooks. I'll try that.
