Arrow 2 Calibre questions - covers & series

Hi, new to the forums here. I use the Kindle App (both iPad and Andriod tablets). I used Calibre to clean up downloaded epub books, and have 2 questions:

1. I have Calibre download metadata, and let it download a nice cover, usually a big one. Sometimes (not always), when I copy the updated book to the Kindle App, the cover is either very small or totally missing. Otherwise, the book itself reads fine. Any ideas?

2. I can't get the 'series' field to work on the Kindle App. I put a series of 10 books on my wife's Kindle App (tablet), and they are books 1-10 in a series. She wants a good way to know which book is #1, #2, #3 etc. Initally, the series fields were blank. I entered 'Sisterhood' as the series name, and put them as 1, 2, 3 etc. It saves this info in the file. But when copied to the Kindle App, this doesn't show up anywhere, and she still can't tell which order the should be read in. The only thing I can think of right now it to change the title and put a number in front of the title. Any suggestions on getting Series to work?

Thanks!
Dave
