Exclamation Cover image isn't displaying as cover image

I've created cover image and two pages. Haven't toched TOC yet. Marked my front image as cover image and saved everything once again.

When I tryed to import this book too Aldiko Reader it add this book as blank page. Sure when I start to read it shows everything correctly, but for some reason there is a blank page as first page.

Silly question:
Did you place the image ON a page (the cover page)?
Sigil will display a native image file (eg foo.jpeg), that is a naked image

Use the Black screen Icon to place the Image on a page

Answer: Check the "content.opf" at the bottom of the file listing. Near the bottom of this file is the

<spine toc="ncx">
<itemref idref="coverpage-wrapper" linear="no" />
<itemref idref="item4" linear="yes" />
<itemref idref="item5" linear="yes" />
<itemref idref="item6" linear="yes" />
<itemref idref="item7" linear="yes" />
</spine>

If your cover image is marked "linear="no"/> Change the no to yes. This should allow the cover to display.
