import serie metadata from calibre

hello
i've recently buy alfaebook.
previously i use calibre, and all my book metadata contain series (write directly into the opf file inside the .epub file)
ex, for the book "Terres d'exil" from RA Salvatore, inside the opf i have these fields:
opf:meta name="calibre:series" content="Légende de Drizzt"
opf:meta name="calibre:series_index" content="2.0"

can i use these fields for automaticaly populate the "series" field in alfaebook?
how?

and one more question, i can edit metadata for all book except one, (edit metadata -> title in grey), and in book card file is in red.
why?

thanks
(sorry for my english, i'm french)

Hi,
Yes you can import all metadata from Calibre using Scan
http://alfaebooks.com/help/import_calibre

Probably this book file is moved or deleted

i've tried, but it's not work.
i import books with "scan book" options (with "use .opf files), but no series info imported.

and no, the book exist, i can read it.
