Import Author And Title From Filename & Import Other Tags And Cover From File

I have a folder full of over 1,400 ebooks that I want to manage in Calibre.

The filenames are set up as:

<title> - <author>.mobi

I want to use the filename for the title and author metatags as these are all accurate and the tags currently on each file are either not correct or not formatted as I want them.

The other tags I would like to keep the same as are currently on the file (cover, published date, comments, etc...).

I cannot find a way to import all the books using the filename for the title and author and leaving the remaining tags as they are already on the file.

I'm sure this should be easy to do but I am either being really thick (which is highly probable) or I'm missing a setting somewhere.

Thanks in advance,
