@purplepancake: Happy to help . (In the end, it's not that complicated, but it can get tricky depending on people's settings and workflows... ).

FWIW, the native resolution of the PW screen is 758x1024 . 600x800 was for the 'old' 6" screens (K1/2/3/4/Touch). Or course, if you're also reading on a tablet, larger doesn't hurt .

No cover when converted to MOBI

3/ If you manually deleted over USB, unplug & eject once before going any further, to let the Kindle catch up and update its internal catalog.

4/ Make sure your stuff was converted *without* the 'Enable sharing' in the MOBI output settings, and that the tag set to trigger the PDOC flag isn't part of the tags of your books. Reconvert if needed.
5/ Send books via Calibre's "Send To Device".
6/ Unplug & eject. You get covers & no PDOC banner. If you still get a PDOC banner, check 4/.
I'm completely new to this program and everything to do with converting. I just recently started trying to upload downloaded books and I've tried to follow all of the instructions listed in this thread but I've come to a dead end in trying to find 4/ "Enable sharing".... There is no block with that option. The only things listed are what you see in the attachment. Everything works but the cover when I send the book to my PW Kindle. What am I missing?

The image you attached is from an old version of calibre. The current version is 1.2. Upgrade your version and try again.

I use the Kindle android app so can't eject or use calibre's send to device. Some books the cover works, others it doesn't.

Thanks for the link. I rather have the sync working than the covers. Was hoping I could have my cake and eat it too.

Could someone explain this part in English? What tag? How are you supposed to make sure the tag isn't present if you don't know what/where it is?

I've got a couple hundred mobi files. Is there a way to chekc them to see if they need to be reconverted to remove PDOC?

@unknownsoldierx: Check the "Kindle Format" subforum for KindleUnpack and the dumpmobiheader tool, and check that the cdeType in the EXTH header is set to EBOK, not PDOC.

But remember that's only a single part of the equation, depending on how the files were produced/sent to the device.

Ok. I bit the bullet and just converted all my books mobi > mobi. Seems it would take forever to use those other tools on so many books.

Everything seems good, except unread books don't open to the cover page. They open to the prologue or something. Minor annoyance.

Thanks.
