Mobi files not showing cover in KOReader



I've recently been looking to use the KOReader for my preferred method of organization on my jailbroken PW4, however none of my mobi files that were converted in Calibre are showing a cover.

I have reviewed each book and added the cover in Calibre and they appear correctly in the Kindle itself but when i open up KOReader they are not populating,

Apologies if this has been covered in previous threads, i haven't been able to find any info after multiple searches.

It seems plausible that MOBI metadata support would be extremely minimal to nonexistent.

MOBI support in general is extremely minimal, I wouldn't really rely on it. Since you're already converting stuff, I'd urge you to keep using ePubs .

Thanks NiLuje,
Converting everything to ePubs works for the covers but now have another issue, My series that have 10+ books are not being displayed in a proper order IE not 1,2,3,4 but 1,10,11,2,3,4) Does KOReader have the ability to sort by series number or would it be more of a naming issue of the files?

Nope. The filemanager can sort by name, atime, mtime and the like, but doesn't know any metadata of the file. That feature was requested in https://github.com/koreader/koreader/issues/3864.

You actually see *some* metadata because the cover browser plugin scans each file *once* to show the proper book name and author.

Just name them "Series 1", etc. Although it's possible you might need to name it "Series 01". I'm sure calibre should be able to accommodate.

Thanks Everyone,

I was able to get the ordering to work with some adjustments to the Send-to-Device settings in Calibre and display settings in KOreader so the title only shows the title but KOReader sorts by the file name itself.

The easiest way is to provide a leading zero for single digits, will work for (00-99) Two zeros for single digits (000-999); and so on.

Luck;
