Calibre Generated Covers Not Shown on Nook

I'm having a problem with my Nook HD accepting 100% of Caibre download covers.  Most of the covers show on nook, but some books continue to show the grey cover.  I've tried deleting the book on Nook, downloading a new cover, and then sideloading the book to the Nook again with Calibre without success.  On my iPad, the iTunes cover downloaded from the net always takes but not on Nook.  Any suggestions?

Re: Calibre Generated Covers Not Shown on Nook

After you add "edit" a cover to an epub in Calibre, check just the epub file in anohter ereader, you can use the ereader that is part of B&N's pc ereader or Adobe Digital Editions "ADE", verifying the cover is embeded in the epub.  If not, back in Calibre reselect the book, and convert to epub, that will embed the new cover into the actual epub file.

 

Personally I don't use Calibre to side load epubs, I do use calibre to do the above cover process, and then directly copy the edited epub to my Nook HD through windows explorer.  I have had to add about 40 covers in last 3 or 4 weeks and the process I describe above while not one click, works 100% of the time.

Like yocalif said, after you edit the cover you want, convert from epub to epub and it should show up on your Nook.

Re: Calibre Generated Covers Not Shown on Nook

Thanks!  Worked like a charm after I re-converted the books to epubs on Calibre.
