Question Book covers not sending to device

Hi everyone!
I have added my book from my kindle to Calibre. I delete the original off my kindle (no worries, have backed it up! lol). I download the metadata and cover. I send from Calibre to kindle. I see the book on there, in it's own little folder, but it still displays the old cover and I don't know where to see the metadata at. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

Thanks!
Tanya

A cover does not get inserted into the file unless you run a conversion (even if it is to the same format)

converting?

When I try to convert it tells me my input is azw, but it doesn't let me output to azw, so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong?

when I try to output to mobi, it gives me an error saying the book is drm'ed and I have to strip that off before I can convert it. All I want to do is change the cover, is it really this hard?

Yes, when you're dealing with DRM'd books it is that hard.
