Unhappy Calibre Reads all newly imported Epubs as same book

Hello all. Let me start by saying I am running calibre 3.15 34bit on win 10 64 bit (the 64 bit version did not work on this laptop). For some reason, Calibre has picked a book it likes and imports this book no matter what file selection I am doing.

Can anyone offer advise on how I can resolve this?

Which ADD metadata mode are you using ?
filename or internal metadata.
I suspect the former (file name) with a bad template (parses filename) choice.
Try using internal metadata (Tick 'Read from File contents')

Thank you theducks. I will try to work on changing that to see how well it works. What disturbs me the most was that it actually pulled in the Epub file for the book that it seem to love, not the Epub file I was importing.
I fired up my win 8 & win 7 PC's that are running older versions of calibre. The files are imported correct and the corresponding epubs for the title is pulled in correctly as well.

EDIT: My add data setting is set up to read from the file name. Calibre still pulls an epub from a separate directory every time. This does not happen with the same files running on the other PCs with different windows versions.

No it is not. Look at the first tick Which adds to the puzzle
Either there is NO internal metadata, or it is wrong (corrupt)

A couple of questions which might help to figure out what's going on...
Which add book function are you using to get this error?
Do you get the same results when you drag and drop the ebook file into Calibre you wish to add?

I was using the add book from directories, including sub directories ( multiple). I also tried the one book per directory and add from a single directory. I realized my typo in the previous response, theduck, so I apologise. I tried to import with this checked or unchecked as well. I get the same book (meta data & epub file) every time. Using version 2.41 on win 7 imported the books fine, as well as on 2.80 on win 8.

I am not sure why the configuration on the newest pc is bringing in an ebook nowhere near the directory but I guess I can use the other pcs in the meantime while I figure out why it's happening. If the file was corrupted, then would it have imported on previous versions of Calibre? And yes, dragging the correct epub into a blank book had the same result, Calibre pulls the same epub in, over and over.

@mixdcrysy - try adding books when calibre has no optional plugins loaded, see calibre command.

Try creating a new library and adding books to it.

Is your Calibre library on a server or on the PC you are having problems with?
