Cover image issue when converting to .mobi

I have this problem. I have book in .txt format and a cover image. When i use calibre to create mobi file the cover image is not showing on kindle. I am using kindle for pc on windows xp. But if i use mobipocket creator to create the .mobi file the cover image is showing on kindle.

Any idea why when using calibre the cover image is not showing?

Thanks!

Get the 'Search the Internet' Plugin. Preferences: Get Plugins.

The Search Google works for me, better than the Metadata download (there is a (Just) Get covers function), as I want the cover my paper edition had, not some new 42nd printing one
