cover change doesn't show in Kindle reader

I have a book in Calibre in mobi format. I download and change the cover - the new cover shows in Caibre book details panel.

But when I open the book in my PC Kindle reader, the old cover still shows. Any way to change to the new cover??

Thanks,

.

Did you do a Mobi to Mobi conversion? You need to do that for the new cover to "stick".

The Details panel has the Library version of the cover.
You need to convert the book to embed the current cover into the book.
Note; Metadata is updated in the copy, if you send to a device.

get your covers and metadata in place before you convert, that way the library copy (of the new format) will have the correct cover.
Note2: you can convert Mobi to Mobi
