Add a cover to PRC ebooks

Hi all !
Well, it's in the title : Do you know how I can add a cover to PRC that don't have ?
I tried with calibre, but this modifies the formatting and not always for the best for me.
Is there any software that just add cover (and maybe other metadatas) ?

Thanks in advance !

mobi2mobi which is part of MobiPerl can do that.

Thanks ! I'll give it a try (and adopt it if it's good for me ! )
I see it has a Windows GUI too ! That's great for me (I'm a lazy one ! )

Ok, great but for one point : I lost all the page breaks after the conversion ... (mobiperl-0.0.43, Mobi2Mobi GUI v.016)
Any idea to correct this point ?

I can't help you with the page breaks, but there is a marvellous little program called CyThumbCreator.exe which enable one to make a thumbnail for mobipocket ebooks from your own jpgs. Then you just put it in the same directory as your ebook - with the right name of course - and the Cybook shows it as though it was the cover made by Mobipocket Creator or Calibre.

Regards, Alex
