How to prevent replacement of cover.jpg in kepubs when sending to Kobo e-reader?

Hi,

I have pre-converted all my epubs to the kepub format with a small generated cover image, to prevent wasted space in my library. My hope was that when I would send the book from my calibre library to my device, this kepub file would simply be copied from my calibre library and renamed to kepub.epub. This does not appear to be the case because, if I add another cover in my calibre library after the conversion, this new cover is inserted into the kepub.epub file that is transferred to my Kobo e-reader.

Is there any way to prevent this from happening, and have the "send to device" button copy over the kepub file from my calibre library untouched?

It is standard calibre function to update the metadata and covers in books when sending to the device. Or during a save-to-disk and several other operations. The only way to turn this off is to disable the metadata writer for the format you are using. In this case, it is the KePub Metdata Writer plugin.
