NOOK 1st: HOW to Show Book Covers on Touchscreen?? 4 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 0
Hello fellow Nook nuts!
I had a 1st edition Nook a few years ago, when it was a big thing, before all the insane full-HD full-color full-touch screen computer tablets came out. I have had a LOT of experience with all kinds of e-readers, tablets, and computers. The NOOK first edition has remained my absolute FAVORITE for e-books. It has the perfect, easy to read screen with just enough of a touch-screen to make using the device easier and better-looking.

My PROBLEM is this: I remember having my book covers all displayed in the touch screen when I entered the 'My Library' on my previous first ed. Somehow I can't seem to figure out how to get this to work on my new one. I use Calibre to side-load .epub books, and of course the metadata has the covers, but still I can't figure it out. HELP??

I think that FAQ covers it - put the jpg file with same name in place for epub

Except it already has the covers stored that way. Thanks for the link though.

Dude - did you restart? I've seen book covers not appear until after a restart on 3G.

What firmware you on?

Yes, the Nook went on an updating spree for about an hour the other day. Still no covers. Also, another problem I have is that the screensavers I made (properly and with correct titles) do not want to change images.
