Book covers not showing in Nook Color library

It just shows a gray square with part of the title in white and the author in a lighter grey. Everything else seems to have transferred over just fine, except for the covers. Could someone help me with this? It has made my library very hard to navigate without having the intended covers on the books.

Do an epub to epub conversion in calibre before sending your files to the Nook.

For files already on the nook delete them from the nook, do an epub to epub conversion in calibre and resend them.

You can also embed the covers using the Modify ePub plugin or the Polish books feature. I just use Calibre Companion and never have to worry about it since CC always uses the covers and data you see in calibre.
