adding books cover comments

I am running windows xp and windows calibre 0.6.29.

I would like to be able to save my library, and then reimport the books into a new library without any loss of data. I was hoping to be able to create a new calibre library. I thought I did this with calibre in the windows 0.5.XX versions, but I may have been wrong.

I have saved books (save to disk), resulting in folders(author's name) containing folder(book name) containing(bookname.jpg, bookname.lit, bookname.lrf, bookname.opf).

When I add this saved book (add book from directories, including sub-directories(One book per directory, assumes every ebook is the same book in a different format)) I get all metadata except for cover image and comments.

I have Saving books set to (save cover separately,update metadata in saved copies, save metadata in OPF file and convert non-english characters to english equivalents). These were defaults. In adding books I have tried both selecting or not (read metadata from file name).

Any help as to whether this is possible would be appreciated.
