calibre shelf management not working

i bought kobo aura hd few weeks back. i have downloaded latest calibre version 1.5.0 and kobo touch extended plugin. i also set the metadata management to automatic.i put the tag type #bookshelf in the plugin settings(didnt change other settings).i disabled other kobo plugins.
the problems i encountered:
1) as i put the name of the shelf in custom metadata (in the textbox next to column heading-kobo bookshelf) they get added to the column.
then i sent the file once to memory card then ejected & once to main memory then ejected -result=one of the shelves that i had formed with the ereader had gone from having 8 books to 0 books and no new shelf(formed with calibre) was there on the ereader

what am i doing wrong??
2)can i make shelves with books that i send through calibre(after customizing metadata) to memory card??
3) i have read the term series shelves on calibre-kobo threads.i cant understand what does this mean??

please help
thanks in advance.

If the shelves don't already exist on the device, you need to set the "Create shelves" option in the driver.

All the rest sound correct.

You can use more than one column in the configuration for the shelves. If you use the "series" column, it will create a shelf for each series and put the books for the series on it. Hence "series shelf".

The driver will change the shelves for books that are on the device that are also in the calibre library. It won't do anything for other books on the device and it won't change their shelf.

I suggest you have a look in the stickies at the top of the forum. There is a shelf management thread that covers all this and more.

perhaps this might help for creating shelves.

The basic steps are; (unplug Glo from PC).

Create a Custom Column in Calibre; Shelves
Create the Shelves for Calibre under "tag Browser" in "Look and feel"; #Shelves, SciFi, NonFic, etc.,
Create the Shelves for the Glo in the koboTouch driver in Calibre; #Shelves, SciFi, NonFic, etc.,
Set the Import/Export to Automatic in "Sending books to devices".
(restarts are required to ensure that all changes take effect).

Edit the book/'s "Custom Metadata" with shelf label.

Calibre will auto sync with the Glo;
After a restart of Calibre.
When connecting the Glo to the PC if Calibre is open.
