Covers Stopped Showing Up
« on: May 22, 2020, 06:12:50 pm »
For a long time I've used Calibre to send MOBI files from the Overdrive Library to my Oasis 2. The covers show up fine.


But today I noticed that the covers do not show up for some ebooks that I sent recently. Even after I open the book, it still shows no cover.


Here, for example, all of the six ebooks were transferred in the same way, but only Camino Winds, which I transferred early, has a cover:





Anyone know why?

    Doing some more experimenting, I discovered that if I delete a book that has a cover then sideload it again from Calibre, the cover does not show up.

    I wonder what's changed.

    This is a new bug:

    https://www.reddit.com/r/kindle/comments/gktpa2/all_my_book_covers_just_disappeared/

    In that thread, someone discovered a workaround:

    1. Turn on Airplane Mode
    2. Send books via Calibre
    3. Restart Kindle

    A pain, but it works.
