Kindle Annotations vs Plugboard rename Title with series initials/numbering
I've been using a plugboard to rename books in a series with the initial of the series and the series number. It works beautifully, no problems there. I read the books on my Kindle 3. The plugboard is set to rename the "title" field.
I suddenly noticed that when I download the kindle annotations books renamed by the plugboard don't update. That is, I don't get any annotations for any book renamed by a plugboard.
Poking at things a bit, I see when I use Calibre to browse the contents of my Kindle it (Calibre) shows those books aren't in my library. It makes sense when I think about it (I've renamed the book after all).
But, I had kind of hoped/expected that I would be able to use the plugboards to give me series information AND have the benefit of annotations updates/Calibre recognizing the books as being in my library.
Is there some change I can make to allow both?

I use a plugboard to rename books in series, and don't have a problem with the books being recognised by calibre as being on the device. Fetch annotations also works.
Not sure if it matters, but I have "Read metadata from files on device" checked for the kindle device plugin.
I guess you could try to rename the metadata.calibre file on the Kindle, then restart calibre. Calibre will recreate the metadata.calibre cache file(I think it takes a while if you have a lot of books in the kindle). Hopefully this will make you see your books correctly marked as on-device/in-library.
