    I have all the covers in Calibre, it even puts them on the nook as .jpg , but they show up separately from the book , and as unreadable.
    Example: I add one book by Christopher Moore. It shows on the nook as a folder named Christopher Moore with 2 items in it. One is the book with the generic "n" cover, the other is a blank .jpg file that the nook says is unreadable.

    This is if I put them on an micro sd card. Most of the time, the same book on the internal memory will show the cover.

    sorry to hijack your thread Frank

    No problem Nookin...

    Seems this should be simple. I have still had no success...

    Not that it is the end of the world but I am definitely a RED...

    In Calibre, if you've got the cover with the book in the directory, click on convert, then go to structure detection, then click insert metadata as page at start of book, then click ok to convert. After doing this and then dragging the book to my nook, the cover has always shown up.

    I've never tried this with an ADE book from the library but it works fine for anything I've downloaded from gutenberg or other sites, grabbed a book cover from google images, and converted.

    This a good method for inserting a cover into a DRM-free eBook but will not work for eBooks with DRM.

    Really? Because you can make other metadata changes to DRMed books, like changing the title or author sort, that will work. Wonder why covers would be different?

    I know I can change other metadata, but I seem to remember that it wouldn't change the cover once. I may be misremembering that, though.

    After your reply, I tried adding a cover to a library book I had just downloaded via ADE. Calibre wouldn't let me convert the book with the new cover, said it was DRM protected. You're right, it works for non DRM protected books but does not appear to work for ebooks with DRM.
