PRS 350 - I've lost all my book covers

My PRS 350 was stuck in Calibre, so I just unplugged it.

I now only have generic blank thumbnails as book covers. I tried adding a new book and it also is blank. Any ideas of how I can get my covers back?

Is this old post any use to you? In particular the last paragraph. But you do need to have Calibre metadata management set to Automatic in Prefs - Sending books to device for it to work.

However, if you are currently managing Sony Collections manually on your reader, don't try the above as Calibre will recreate all the Collections when you next connect.

Thanks much for your help - Calibre is already set to these settings, so I was at a bit of a loss.

But I did some digging around in the directory of my Sony and discovered that the folder for thumbnail/database/media/books was missing. I created a new folder, synced with Calibre and all my covers returned

The motto ? Always hit the "disconnect hardware safely" button (or similar..) before grabbing that lead....
