Quick Question re my new PRS-T1

My reader arrived this morning Had no problem at all with set-up or connecting to my home wi-fi. But have just bought a book via Reader Desktop from Waterstones. The cover art was showing as "blank" on both reader desktop and the device. So I opened up Calibre and asked it to fetch the cover, which it did. Cover art is now showing on Reader desktop and Calibre, but not on the PRS-T1- the book is there but the cover is a blank.
I'm sure I read a thread a while back about this, but search as I might I cannot find it.
Can anyone help, please?

Delete the book on the T1, then add it again.

Thanks, I tried that but no joy- still a blank cover. Cailbre refuses to transfer it to the Reader- it says format not supported??? Sony Reader Desktop transfers it ok, but minus the cover.
Any other help welcome.

Solved

Solved it. I was loading the ACSM file, which appeared in my download dir, to Calibre. After a bit of Googling I found out that this file is only to do with Adobe's DRM- the ebup file was in my docs/books. Loaded it into Calibre, downloaded cover, transferred to device and the cover is there now.
Easy once I discovered my noob error

Thanks again for the help

Screensaver

The cover of the books now appear on the home screen OK. But if I set screensaver to cover of last read, the cover comes up as blank on the screensaver.
Am I missing something?
