    No book cover image when loading library epub using Adobe Digital Editions

      I just loaded onto my NC an epub book from my local library using ADE. In the past my library epubs displayed a color book cover image whenever I loaded them onto my NC. This time, however, all I see is the generic grey book with title. This is the first time I have used ADE since the v.1.4 update. Is the generic grey book a result of the update, or is something else going awry with my NC or with ADE? The book is readable, and of course this is the most important thing. I just wondered if something is wrong with the NC software update. I did do a full shutdown and restart of the NC, but there was no change. Any info is appreciated.

          I don't believe it has anything at all to do with your nook.  It's an ADE issue.  I think there are ways to fix it, but I don't recall.  I have the same issue with my ipad.  In fact, sometimes the cover isn't even displayed within Adobe.

              The books with generic covers are probably DRMed ePUBs not from B&N.  

               

              I purchase many non-agency ePUB titles from sellers other than B&N.  All ePUB files, DRMed or not, can be sideloaded and read just fine on my NOOKs.  But  DRMed ePUBs not from B&N (such as those from Kobo), display with  generic grey covers.  I do not think there is a work around for this.

               

              If I am wrong or if someone else has discovered one, please let me know, too.  

               

              PS:  If a PURCHASED non-DRMed ePUB displays a generic grey cover, you CAN  add or generate  a color cover via Calibre and reload the title with its new cover art.  (ADE is the only option for library books, isn't it?)
