Book Covers on Calibre
« on: June 16, 2013, 11:56 AM »
Hi

Is anyone having trouble in the last week or so, getting covers to load using Calibre, all the books I have put on Calibre in the about the last 10 days, the covers haven't loaded onto my ereader, any suggestions!  I was wondering if it was a glitch from one of Calibre's updates or something.

Hi Jilly,

I just wanted to let you know we moved your post to the correct board. You had it on the ebook board and this is a technology question.
Thanks for your understanding.  :)

I think you may have forgotten to convert your books after you've changed the cover in the metadata option of Calibre before transferring them to your eReader.

Nope, I'm very excited, that I figured it out, for me any way, using a Kobo, there is some glitch in either ver 9.34 or 9.35, as my covers disappeared from my ereaders somewhere in between those two versions, so I went back and downloaded ver 9.33 and all my covers came back, I originally thought it was just covers from books that I had recentlly downloaded, but on my Kobo Touch, all the covers were gone.  Weird, but I fixed it!  I can't say that glitch would affect other ereaders, but going back to ver 9.33 worked for me.

Well, I'm glad you managed to get your problem fixed.  I've heard that Kobo eReaders have allot of problems with regards to their hardware and firmware updates.

It is very strange, I have only ever had Kobo's, my first one has died but all the other ones are refurbished and haven't had any problems, I really think there is a glitch between Calibre and Kobo this time, but whatever it is, I got my covers back.  Love my covers, it damned near killed me to not have them.

That is probably the case, I think the Kobo sometimes releases their firmware updates quicker than Calibre can keep up with them.
