@Samurai: The metadata download process tries to merge the results from multiple sites. Then it displays them in the list in the order of best match. I assume the bulk download takes the first of the matches. That makes it hard to guarantee any any particular source will be the selected one.

As you want the covers from other sites, the only think I can think of is to change the options for each of those sites. For each metadata source, you can set which metadata values to take. If you deselect all the values for all sources other than Goodreads, it will probably do what you want. I haven't tried this, so I'm not completely sure it will work.

Ah, it'd be great if that could work. You can't change the sources from each different page individually on each. You can check/uncheck the metadata for all of the sources, unless there's another way I don't know.

If you select the source in the list, and press the "Configure selected source" button under the list, options for the source will be displayed. This has options to choose the metadata fields to use for that source.

Ah, you are RIGHT. Thanks a lot. I don't know why but I always went to the option menu from the Edit Metadata window and not from the Preference to see the "Configure selected source".
Now I can pull metadata only form Goodreads and Covers from everywhere.
