Calibre epub to azw3 fail to resolve book cover

Hi,
I have a problem with converting epub's to mobi and/or azw3.

The conversion succeeds but the book cover is lost in translation resulting in that once added to my kindle paper white 3G + WiFI a default icon with text of the book title is displayed rather than the original book cover.

The cover of the original epub is displayed on Adobe Digital Edition but seem to get lost once converted to azw3 and/or mobi.

I have tried various options such as "Use cover from source", Change cover image" etc but so far no luck.

Is it just me or is there an issue with this?

cheers

All he presented you with was the link that answered your question.

Everything below the black line is his signature and is at the end of every message he writes. You may have noticed it says "Notice to all" to indicate it is addressed to everyone.
