Hi Gang, I am going crazy here.
I have a Android based NEXTBOOK that I am using as my ebook reader. This tablet requires books to be transfered with adobe digital editions. When I transfer a book it shows up in the library on the tablet as EPUB, Not very useful when all the books have the same cover.
I use Calibre to mange my library, I converted from mobi to epub then did the epub to epub conversion again to try to get the cover embeded. When I look at the book in adobe it has a cover, I transfer it to the NEXTBOOK and it creates a thumbnail in the digital editions\thumbnails directory in png format but the tablet will not display it.
Any tips on what I may be doing wrong here?

Having cover issues with mobi.
I have an ePub file which I want to convert to mobi but also change the cover. However no matter what I try, Kindle (device and app) cannot detect the new cover. The calibre viewer displays the cover ok.
I tried the following:
1. Change meta data in Calibre and assigned a cover from file. Convert to mobi.
2. Edit epub in Sigil and deleted existed cover. While this removed the cover, the new one still doesn't show up in the resulting mobi file.
3. Performed a mobi -> mobi conversion.
I have converted many books before from epub to mobi and I never come across this problem before.
What is the problem?

If you are looking in the "Library list" showing all the books supposedly available to your Kindle, then you have a use for the "cover". In my PC Kindle App, you can look at the books as if they were displayed "cover upwards". This makes it much easier to identify the book you are after, as well as being aesthetically pleasing. My Android tablet produces the Kindle offerings as if on a carousel. Covers matter a lot there.
