Book Covers & metadata

Hi everyone. I've just started to use Caliber with my Kindle, but I've come up against a problem. I can alter the metadata and choose a book cover within caliber, but it will not transfer it to my Kindle. All the data is the same as the original book. It shows as changed on the main screen of caliber (ie, the new cover) but it isnt on the Kindle. On picking read the book within caliber shows that the metadata or the cover has not been changed .. weird. Has anyone got any ideas ? btw, Caliber is the latest version, updated today, and I have a Kindle v3

You often need to do a conversion to force the new cover into the book, in your case mobi-to-mobi I would think.

PLus Kindle doesn't show the cover when you open a book so you must page back to see it
