Help with scaling cover to fit thumbnail

Hi,

I'm having trouble scaling the cover of my book so that it shows up properly as a thumbnail in eReaders. The thumbnail only shows a portion of the cover, i.e. the upper left hand corner. I've noticed this in ADE, Calibre, and on my iPad. Can anyone help?

Thank you!

The recommendations seem to be something like:
Code:
<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" height="100%" preserveAspectRatio="xMidYMid meet" version="1.1" viewBox="0 0 410 686" width="100%" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">
      <image height="686" width="410" xlink:href="../Images/cover.jpeg"></image>
</svg>
You need to change the dimensions to match that of the image.

In calibre and the Kobo ereaders, this will display the cover image image full screen with no distortion.
