    Default Book Art Problem

    I've been searching through the forum and I'm sure some people have had this problem. My Nook Color Library only displays the Book art for only thirteen books. For the rest it just shows a generic thumbnail with the name of the book. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Is there a way to fix it?

    I searched around & came up with a bit of a solution. It's not perfect & it only works with the DRM-free books I've sideloaded (freebies or purchased direct from publisher's sites).
    I blogged about how I did it: http://elladrake.blogspot.com/2011/0...nookcolor.html
    But I did have one person contact me & say she couldn't get it to work. She wasn't able to let me know where she might have run into trouble, and I'd love to know if this works for others.

    Basically, the bottom line is to install Calibre & use it to recreate the book with a new image file.
    I haven't seen anything that's any more streamlined. If anyone else has, I'd love to know.
    It drives me nuts to have those blank boxes instead of covers.

    I updated the blog post I mentioned above.
    Found that a few books still had trouble & had to add a step.
