Write MetaData changes to book files

Is there a way to get Calibre to write metadata changes to the actual book files without doing a conversion?

I cleared most of the tags in my book collection but when I send the files to my iPad, all the old tags are still there and get shown as categories in iBooks.

Thanks,

Tom

With any other device I would say to delete the book from the device then resend the book to the device. I don't know if this means iTunes in your situation or not.

In my experience on the iPad, only one tag is used as a category. Are you sure you aren't seeing some tags like 'History-nonfiction-humor' that are actually a single tag?

I would very much like to know if there is an answer to this question:
I am using Calibre2OPDS and before generating my online catalog it would be great if metadata could be written to the ebook file.

Conversion is indeed a way to do this but it takes quite sometime for my complete database...
