Convention: name of files?

Hi everybody,
i'd like to add my books from CD's (appr.25GB total) in calibre.
The most of my book files have the format:

"surname, firstname - title.extension"
(e.g.: Hillerman, Tony - The Fly on the Wall (v4) [html].rar)

After scanning, "author" and "title" are in the false column, i.e. author under title and title under author (for *.rar, *.txt etc.... files, NOT for *.pdf, *epub etc....).
If i change the filename (the other way round, i.e. "title - surname, firstname.ext" or even "title - firstname surname.ext") everything will be right.
Is it possible to adjust the name convention in calibre somewhere , that it is compatible with MY file name format?
Best regards
