Question How can I get selected cover image into the book metadata itself?

Thanks for this info. I have the same problems with some ebooks I got from the Gutenberg site ... nice covers I applied in Calibre don't transfer over. I even tried opening the book file in Calibre, found the "cover.jpg", copied it over to the Nook thumbnail file folder, renamed it to coincide with the book name. Still doesn't show up.

Does anyone know how to get the selected cover into the book metadata itself???

P.S. I know this is an old thread, hoping some people are still looking at it!
