    well, if you have 2.1, check the gallery and double check for the pic etc. sucks when stuff like this happens, if not plug the usb into the computer and try to find it

    It's probably cached in your albumthumbs directory(in your SD card). Android makes a reference to your album artwork and caches it in the albumthumbs folder. However the files in there do not look like a typical jpeg file. They have binary names with no file extension, something like "1270179358058". you can try to find your picture by right clicking on the files and opening it with a image editor(MS paint will do). Once you find that image that it is referencing to, you can then replace it with the image that you want with the exact name, and no extension to the file. Then your image will update. I've tried this with the nexus one and it works, I'm assuming the droid is pretty much the same. Hope it helps :)

    Sluma's response is probably your best bet. If you want to get rid of it, you're going to have to go searching.
