KPW - Thumbnail Cover Missing

HI

Is there any reason why the vast majority of book covers' thumbnails are missing from the overview mode?

FWIW, today's Calibre release (0.9.3) should now handle this properly on the PW (and I imagine it would have fixed the Cover View via JBPatch on the Touch, too, if ixtab hadn't already worked around it ).

Again, this only applies to content sideloaded via Calibre. The only manually sideloaded stuff that will have working thumbnails are files straight from KindleGen (or recent Calibre versions with the 'Enable sharing' output setting). (And files from Amazon, after you enable wireless on your device).
