Yes, it was ejected, then after a couple of minutes reconnected.

No, I know it isn't. ISBN are used with books and ASIN are, I believe, unique to Amazon and more commonly used on items other than books. So could there be a conflict or is it ok to have both?
And Yes I used send to device.

No file was edited off the paperwhite at all times.

Sorry should have made this clearer - the book in question is one of a series. I wanted a visual as to which order they are read in. So I edited the jpg to add a 'number' visually in the image so to speak. Edited pics before for this reason and never had a problem.

Ok thanks for the tip

Ok - but other links on this site disagree here - but I'm happy to try it your way. Up to getting the paperwhite I've always left this alone and would use [PDOC]

Ok - so I assume that calibre produces the thumbnail? If so where is it stored/filed on the paperwhite or is it embedded in the mobi. Are you in fact calling the cover a thumbnail or is this a secondary item?

As a matter of interest only, what is the difference between 'sending to' and dragging or pasting the mobi to the paperwhite, the end result is that it bypasses the Amazon servers but what else happens?

"Send to device" used since you first insisted.

Thanks again for your time.
