Books sent to 'Docs' not 'Books' on Kindle Fire

Hi all
I just started using Calibre to manage e-books that I am downloading for my Kindle Fire. I have already sent some books to my device but they are all listed under 'Docs'. Is there anyway that the books can be stored under the 'Books' menu instead?

ok, I just found some posts on the same issue and have followed all the advice but all my books are still going to docs -

1. I have re-run the setup wizard and not put any email details in, so my books are not getting sent by email
2. I have gone to preferences, output, mobi and in the Personal Doc Tag I have put EBOK
3. I have gone to Device, Configure this defice and deleted Docs from the list of folders and also created a rule to send MOBI to Books
4. I have also tried converting the file again to MOBI before sending it to device

None of this has worked. Are there any other suggestions?

Amazon wants all non amazon files to be pdocs, you can try to fool it by setting a field in the header, but then you will have other problems, like covers not showing and so on.

Thanks for the reply. After much persevering and playing around I managed to get it too work...
I ended up leaving the Personal Doc Tag field blank and also had to untick the sharing option.
The only last issue that I have now is that I can see the covers in my books menu, but not all of them show in my carousel
