I can't remove cover image from mobi file

I am trying to remove the cover image from one mobi file but i can't do this with calibre. I am removing the cover image from the "edit metadata" option but it doesn't actually remove it. When i open the file with kindle or Calibre e-book viewer the image is still there.

Is there any way to delete the cover image? I want to completely remove it from the mobi file?

No, there isn't. Create a dummy image if you must.

Use mobiunpack plugin, delete link to the cover img from html (or cover from images folder), and make new mobi with your preferred mobimaker.
Make a copy first.

K4PC doesn't always (if ever, any more) use the metadata cover for library display. It downloads and stores a local copy of the cover image when purchasing/downloading Amazon content. I'll be honest... I don't know if it's possible any more to "roll your own" MOBIs and have K4PC display the cover. It seems as though it's tied to the official Amazon purchase/download process. Somebody might have figured out how to hack K4PCs db and get it to work, though.

Simply check the share not sync option in the mobi output settings in preferences, and reconvert the mobi.

I had one mobi file without any cover image so i use mobi2mobi to insert cover image and i saw that the cover image appears in "library view" on kindle for pc but if i try to change already existed cover image it still shows the old cover image.

I tryed the mobiunpack plugin and i unpack the mobi file with calibre then delete the images from the image folder and rebuild the mobi file. Then i use mobi2mobi to insert the new image and now the cover image is showing in Library view.

This hassle is part of why Mobi is obsolete. It's just a pain in the a$$ to make most changes.

You can buy Tyres for a Model T Ford. The car is still obsolete

I would expect you to be able to buy Mobi.
At least until sales of that format fall off so much .
