AFAIK the image needs to reside in .rockbox/backdrops. Also make sure it has the right size (220x176 pixels).

There are different types, but usually only compressed bmps are problematic. Look for an option called RLE or Run Length Encoding and turn it off. If you still encounter problems, you can upload the file to an image hosting service like tinypic or imageshack and we can have a look.

AFAIK means As Far As I Know.
