Could someone just explain if I have the wrong end of the stick here:
1) Say I have 5 books, mobi format and all imported into my Calibre library 6 months ago (ie. with a version less than 0.7.44).
2) All the books do NOT have their ASIN/EBOK fields set.
3) Say my kindle is completely empty.
4) I upgrade to 0.7.45.
5) If I transfer a book to my kindle via calibre, will it add the metadata during the transfer (my tests show this to be a NO).
How do I set the ASIN/EBOK fields using calibre in this instance? Do I just reimport all the books again? Or am I missing a command somewhere?
Thanks very much guys!
I've not upgraded yet, but I think you just have to re-convert your books.
Then Calibre will generate the ASIN/EBOK fields.
