How? If you did it from anywhere else than the device itself, eject & let your Kindle update its catalog before doing anything else.

Left in the ISBN was this correct?
Nope, an ASIN is not an ISBN. (And the Calibre UUID you deleted is fine if you use Calibre's Send To Device).

(And which file did you edit? If you edited the file on your device, that explains everything: don't.)

Serial number? Huh?

In 'mobi output'
Used 'both'.
Did not select 'share'
If you only have KF8 capable devices, and don't care about portability, output to AZW3, you'll end up with smaller files.

Useless, just set it to a a string that you're pretty sure will never be used in a tag (personally, I'm using something in the vein of +PDOC, but that's because I actually rely on it sometimes, but that's another subject).

Yes, it actually sideloads the thumbnails. Hence my insistence on telling you to use Calibre's "Send To Device".
