Missing cover in epub converted to mobi?

I generated a .mobi file from an epub (using Kindle Previewer).

It keeps giving me a "missing cover" warning, which is displayed over the cover image.

The Kindle Previewer documentation says that the cover should be included this way:

Define covers in the OPF file using the following tags:
<metadata>
...
<meta name="cover" content="my-cover-image" >
...
</metadata> ... <manifest>
...
<item href="MyCoverImage.jpg" id="my-cover-image" media-type="image/jpeg" >
...
</manifest>

But I'm having trouble figuring out how to insert that into the ePub. I think I would probably have to insert that file in more than just the manifest folder. Also would it conflict with the "cover.jpg" file that's already in the ePub?

Any suggestions?

thanks!
