Please help! Nookcolor/Calibre

Okay, so I browsed a bit before creating a new thread, but if I missed the answer in there somewhere, I apologize.

I am having a slight problem. I've got a whole bunch of books that I am using Calibre to convert. When I add them to my Nook, there are books that don't have covers in them. Even after I've gone through and edited the Metadata and used the "Change cover image option" to add the cover. The cover will show up in Calibre, but when I add it to my Nook, it just shows the generic Grey box with the title and the author in it.
I've tried this several different times, turning the nook on and off, creating a new calibre library and starting the whole process over from scratch. It's driving me insane. Any help?!

You can try taking one of the books that has no cover. Do a epub to epub conversion. Verify in calibre viewer the image is at the start of the book. Delete the book from your reader and resend the newer version and see if that works.
