Question Failed to download metadata and cover for an existig ISBN

I want to add the book "The Wife and the Widow" with ISBN 9781528879552.

However calibre returns the following error message:

"ERROR: Download failed: Failed to download metadata or cover for the selected book.

Unknown (Failed metadata) (Failed cover)"

Why's that? - And what can I do about it?

Many thanks for pointers!

It looks like the listed sources do not have this ISBN.

Can I add sources to calibre? And which sources are particularly good for these kind of ISBNs (Audiobooks)?

Each source requires it's own plugin. I'm not aware of any audiobook specific metadata download plugins.

Code:
identify - start. title=None, authors=None, identifiers={'isbn': '9781528879552'}
I would enter the book title and author into the metadata and try the download again.

For what it's worth, I tried creating an empty book with the title, author and ISBN (either audio or ebook) and multiple sources supplied covers though those covers seemed to match the ebook edition with no audio (square) covers supplied.

If it fails with only an isbn then add title and author as well

Thanks for all the tips.

Trouble is all the coveres in metadata details which comes back are from the paper book (by Hachette), not from the audio book (by Wavesound).

I guess this is just what it is: Audiobook metadata are always sooo hard to find...

For this book, when I added kobo:the-wife-and-the-widow to the Ids field, the Kobo Book plugin returned the audio book cover though the Kobo Metadata only returned the ebook cover.
