How to add pic of book cover

Hi,

I've got loads of books on my laptop, but they don't have a picture of the front cover of the book, so when I load it to my cybook, I don't get a thumbnail.

How do I add an image to the file so that I see a thumbnail when I'm viewing the library on my cybook?

Have a look here. I use that script regularly. It creates the .t2b files, which are the thumbnails shown in the library.

Yeah that's great - now can someone tell me what it all means

Can someone tell me an easy way for your average computer user to do it, there must be a way!

You can use this simple little application that ashalan created to create thumbnail pictures of your book covers - see the links in the third reply here:
