Hi,

I just want to confirm that I have just the same Problem jackie_w discribes.
I am using calibre 0.9.5

I can only update the covers on the kobo glow when I manualy delete the book on the device and send it with calibre again. When I delete it on the device with calibre and send it there again the old cover is still there.

Calibre is set to automatic meta-data management und both upload boxes are ticked.

Is this a bug, or I am make something wrong?

New books sent to Kobo Glo:
  • Upload covers CHECKED, Always upload CHECKED
    Both ePub and PDF have calibre thumbnails, no white stripes (i.e aspect ratio not kept)
  • Upload covers UNCHECKED, Always upload CHECKED
    ePub: thumbnails from calibre, with white stripes (i.e aspect ratio kept)
    PDF: thumbnails from PDF page 1
  • Upload covers CHECKED, Always upload UNCHECKED
    ePub: thumbnails from calibre, with white stripes (i.e aspect ratio kept)
    PDF: thumbnails from PDF page 1
Books already on Kobo Glo:
  • Upload covers CHECKED, Always upload CHECKED
    Both ePub and PDF keep existing thumbnails, even if calibre cover changed
  • Upload covers UNCHECKED, Always upload CHECKED
    Both ePub and PDF keep existing thumbnails, even if calibre cover changed
  • Upload covers CHECKED, Always upload UNCHECKED
    Both ePub and PDF keep existing thumbnails, even if calibre cover changed
    .
    In fact the only way I was able to get the Kobo thumbnails to update to the new calibre covers was to resend the books with the device driver configured to have both 'Upload covers' and 'Always upload covers' checked. There was no need to delete the books before resending.
