Downloaded lots of books via Kindle for PC, sycned then find it on my computer, but they are not shown as their title but the gibberish names.

I don't want to check them one by one. It takes me lots of time.

no kindle title

Does anyone had some good tools to recommend?

  • I think the point here is that the OP doesn't want to open the files in any software to be able to find the titles. It's possible that when you right-click on the eBook file on your PC there will be an option to learn more about it, or get more info (don't know the PC terminology). That might give you some of its metadata without having to open each one in some proprietary software like Calibre. – Cal West Nov 2 '15 at 14:23

Check out Calibre. It's the most widely-used tool for managing ebook libraries. It will show you the titles, authors, and other book details in a consistent way.

  • I know Calibre can help edit metadata, but does Calibre help show the book's title name? – user71684 Oct 17 '15 at 2:09
  • @user71684 Yes; like I said, it shows titles, authors, and lots more. – Ed Cottrell Oct 17 '15 at 2:16
  • Hi again, does this mean that, if I want to see all the titles, I need to edit their title names one by one. But, I want a tool that, once I added all the books, it can help me show all the books title names. In other words, I need a tool which can read all the books' metadata and show them. Thanks. – user71684 Oct 19 '15 at 1:38
  • @user71684 I think we are miscommunicating somehow. You don't need to edit the titles (or file names, or anything else) to view them in Calibre. You can load in B00RKFx123.epub (or .mobi, or whatever), and Calibre will show you that the book is "Moby Dick" by Herman Melville, or whatever it actually is. – Ed Cottrell Oct 19 '15 at 4:03

Also check out Alissa's MobiHandler.

  • @ Nemo XXX Thanks for your recommendation. Very nice tool. – user71684 Nov 4 '15 at 1:18
