For old PD books that you get from Gutenberg or Standardebooks, finding an actual match using Calibre's metadata downloader likely won't happen. But you can still go find a synopsis on Goodreads or Librarything and paste the synopsis in yourself.

Reading this thread, I'm just grad I stuck to Nook and Kobo. It never occurred to me there was an ereader out there that made it difficult to see the synopsis of the books that are stored on it.
