I know it's not much, but have a couple of beers on me. Greetings from Mexico and drink Corona beers.

Your software is great.

Don't know if it's just me, but ...

Disappearing covers problems was solved 4.18.

Just tried adding a new, sideloaded book, and the cover disappeared. Confidently, I plugged back in the Kindle and let Calibre (4.19) do it's magic.

Cover reappeared and then disappeared again

Have tried this on two kindles and from two laptops (both Mac). Any new book I add now the Kindle is replacing the cover with the 'default' one.

The problem is that you have WiFi on. I side loaded some eBooks to a PW3 and the covers showed up and then vanished right away. When I turned off the WiFi and connected to Calibre and resent the eBooks, the covers did not vanish. The thing is, one eBooks I sent was a eBook downloaded from Amazon. I did make some changes to ir using the Calibre editor to add in negative L/R margins to reduce the space. I have ni idea why even that one lost the cover.

There aren't any changes to the kindle driver in 4.19 if it has stopped working it will be because amazon has changed something again. https://github.com/kovidgoyal/calibr...ndle/driver.py

I didn't think it was a Calibre change between 4.18 and 4.19, just listed the version numbers for completeness.

I suspect they have changed something, as up until very recently the dual image upload work flawlessly.

Could also be something to do with the specific book. It is one I bought from Amazon and imported into Calibre, then sideloaded. I removed the ISBN and mobi-asin tags before sideload -- not sure if that is necessary.

I don't think you understand how the new plugin is solving the issue. With wifi on, the covers do disappear, but re-connecting to Calibre will permanently restore them.
