Thanks Alissa! I just installed your program in Windows 8 Pro x64 and it works perfectly.
It would be cool to have something like this for EPUB files too. Does anyone know of any? Thanks

Hi,

I just found your program and downloaded it to my Windows 8 x64 system. It seems to work quite well, showing a default image for those items that lack a cover image. thank you for coding this!!!

Works great. Could you please add AZW3 support by default?

I doubt that Alissa is still monitoring this thread or supporting this software. The last post here by Alissa was two yeas ago.

Well, I'm still alive and sometimes reading some topics on this board; but, yes, in much lower frequency. To be honest, I completely switched to Kobo after its official launch in Japan, and I'm not reading with Kindle anymore.

So, I don't know what is AZW3... Is it just an alternative suffix (file type) as in file.azw3 ? If so, it's easy to add a support for that file type.

Hi! Long time.

Might mobihandler also handle ePub then since you're a Kobo person now? To have a dialog with some folks who know just what makes up the differences between the Kindle file types you might consider asking for that info in the Calibre forum here on MobiRead.

Yes it is (the suffix for a KF8-only book). In fact if you rename to .mobi or .azw your current MobiHandler displays the properties just fine.

Yup, but azw3 support out of the box would be nice as well. I use CBX Shell for epub, cbr, and cbz thumbs but if this app added well that would be sweet as well

I know I'm replying to an old request here, but someone might still be interested ...

Since MobiHandler already seems to handle azw3 files, you can get support for them by telling Windows to associate them with MobiHandler.

Note 1: I have not verified that all azw3 files are similar enough to .azw so MobiHandler can handle them. I have tested the procedure below and it worked with the .azw3 files I had, but there's a possibility that other .azw3 files have content that causes MobiHandler to crash.

Note 2: Registry editing is the kind of thing Microsoft tells regular computer users not to do. Be careful. The procedure below should be harmless, but if you "accidentally" hit the delete key at the wrong place you may ruin your Windows installation.

With that covered, here's what you do:
1) Start RegEdit. It's hidden somewhere in the menus - the easiest way on XP is to go Start -> Run -> "Regedit". Or type Regedit if you have Windows 7.

2) Locate the key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.azw

Now there's (at least) three options, depending on what kindle-associated software you have on your computer from before:
a) The azw key has no subkeys. It has one value, with the name "(standard)" and the data "Amazon.Kindle.content". There is no key named HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.azw3
- In that case, create a key named .azw3. Make it identical to the .azw key - i.e. give the standard value the content "Amazon.Kindle.content"

b) There is a key named .azw3 already - but the value named "(standard)" is empty. There's (probably) subkeys to both the .azw and .azw3 keys (named things like "OpenWith" and "ShellEx".
- In that case, do almost like above: Give the standard value on the .azw3 key the same data as the standard value on the .azw key - i.e. "Amazon.Kindle.content". Don't touch the subkeys.

c) There is a key named .azw3 already, and the value named "(standard)" has data.
- In that case, you're on your own. Someone who knows their way around the registry can probably get it to work, but I can't give a simple recipe.

I applied Alissa's program and it works great for mobi files. Does anyone know hot to extend this to epub and djvu files? It'd be nice to be able to see a cover image in the thumbnails for these file formats too.
