Having Trouble With Kobo

Hey there. I was wondering if someone could help help me with a couple of problems I am having with my Kobo.

1. I down loaded a few books with Calibre to my Kodo. They came up in the documents area rather than the books area. How can I get them into books?

2. I reformated from PDF to Epub, Reloaded the books, and now I can't find them in my Kodo.

Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?

Only PDFs show up in the Documents area. When you've converted them to EPUB, look in the Books area. Browse via title, author, etc. If they don't have the right metadata, they'll show up in odd places.

Pdf files go there. It was expected.

I'd rather say you've converted them. Look for new books after you
set the way you show books, like "all", "preloaded" or "new only" or
how they are named on your device. Also, be careful to add just those
meta data you really need. Book title, author. Ascii, no fancy letters
or utf-8.

I changed the date on the Kobo, it was set a couple months ahead, books are there now.
