This is a minor annoyance.
I have been purchasing some books from Kobo as they have had some great promo codes lately. I download them to my computer and side load them to my Simple Touch via ADE. They transfer to my Nook no problem, but in my library, I get a generic book cover with the name of the book on it. This has also happened with a book from the library.
Is this a glitch? Am I going something wrong?
I have tried loading to both, an SD card and to the mail memory and get the same results.
Any help is appreciated!

This has happened to me also. The answer seems to be that the cover is not part of the actual book epub but is a separate file. The solution is to use Calibre to combine the two files and then transfer. I have a large Calibre library and I always re-format any book I'm going to transfer to my Nook before the actual transfer. While Calibre questions if I "really" want to re-format the book that is already in ebub format, doing so ALWAYS works and I end up with the right cover on my Nook. Of course, you need to have the right cover in the Calibre library first, which Calibre does very easilly.
