Post Calibre+Sony PRS 700 tags/collections

Hi all,
the only solution for the many PDF docs I have is to arrange them into collections, fortunately calibre does this BUT ...
since I had the PRS 505 and now the PRS 700 the tags/collections I made in calibre may or may not show in the reader, is there any solution for this?

here is the behavior i get :
everything goes smoothly in calibre
then I start transferring the PDFs, about 300 of them, I use a 16 GB SD card in my reader
the first time it was beautiful, all the books and tags/collections showed up in the reader, THEN .. I had to add more books, after the transfer process the collections in the reader were showing as 0

I tried transferring the books in batches, things went smoothly with the first few batches, I looked the third batch in calibre (books in the SD card, and the Tags column for the third batch only was empty, the previous batches where showing the tags) when I started the reader after the third batch all the collections were gone.

really really frustrating and a real waste of time, it takes hours for the books to be transferred and for the reader to process them and start (actually it consumes a bit of the battery in processing)
resetting the device didn't work either

any experts out there who can guide me on what to do
