well, it normal if the ebook is sideloaded.
I didn't understand your comment about my Nook Color.
Are you saying that cover thumbnails don't show for sideloaded content no matter what? It seems that if the cover shows for the book when it comes directly from my nook library, it should also show if I choose to add the same book by sideloading...
We're aware of the issue and are trying to find a way to show thumbnails for more sideloaded content.
We are working on getting more sideloaded covers to show in library.
Mine will show up when I open the book.
The following information was copied from a post by user Baka No Kami on the Mobileread forum:I think I found something. I took a couple of epubs that wouldn't show the covers on the NC, converted them to mobi files, then back to epub after removing the original. The covers started showing up on the NC like it had when others tried that.
Then I opened up the new epubs and compared some of the files to the original versions looking to see what had changed.
Inside the epubs in a file called content.opf I found the following lines:
In the <metadata> section:
<meta name="cover" content="cover1"/>
And in the <manifest> section:
<item href="cover.jpeg" id="cover1" media-type="image/jpeg"/>
That "cover1" was just "cover" in the working epubs. It looks like when the NC scans a new epub it looks for something to have the id of "cover" in this file. If the cover image isn't assigned an id of "cover" then the NC doesn't use the image. I removed the '1' from those two lines in the original, non-cover, epubs and reloaded them onto the NC. Once I refreshed the epubs started showing with the right cover images.
This might not be the case for all files, but at least it's something that's easy to check/fix.
