Problems with importing books

I have an import reg ex. set of:-
(?P<author>.+)- (?P<series>.+) (?P<series_index>.+) - (?P<title>.+)

And the books I want to add are in the format:-
Author-F Author-S - Series series-I - Title.epub
e.g.
Fred Flinstone - Bedrock 011 - My life.epub

And using the test function it is put in the correct places, but when importing the folder I get :-

Author=TItle
Title=Author+series Index
Series=Series
Series Index=1

So my example would be:-
Author = My Life
Title=Fred Flintsone -Bedrock 001
Series=Bedrock
Series Index=001

This is with Calibre 0.7.19 on Linux Mint 9 64bit.

Any ideas why?

Ok found problem, it was the metadata in the files, turned off "read metadata from contents" and they import properly
