Device: Kindle App on Android
Cover Image for Kindle App

I recently got a tablet and was excited to load the Kindle App on it as a I have tons of ebooks that I have collected over the years in pdf format.
Even better I discovered Calibre which lets me convert to mobi format so I can highlight, add notes, etc to my books. I've even gotten the hang of outputting the pdf as html and then tagging my html to create TOC!
The only thing I'm lacking is cover image. I have searched and searched and found 1000 different responses for a bunch of different devices, none of which have worked for me. I chose my cover image in Calibre when conveting my book. I then copy the files (mobi, meta data, and cover image) to my kindle app folder (I am not using Calibre to manage my books and send to devices, just for converting). Yet no cover image. Where should I save the cover image on my device so that the Kindle App sees it? I keep reading about a "coverCache" folder, however I do not see one anywhere on my device.
thanks for any help. I've got a long road of converting to do and wanted to figure this out before I find out I have to go back and redo all my books to get the cover.
