    I had this issue a while ago. The wallpaper is on the SD card, yes? You'll need to download a file explorer app from the market (I use this one), then use that to navigate to the image on the SD card. Then click the menu button, select set as, and go from there. It works that way, though I'm not sure why it doesn't doing it the normal way.

    try doing it from both menu/wallpapers/photo, and the other method menu/settings/personalise/homewallpaper, sometimes only one or the other will work, think its a 2.1 bug

    If he has the problem I had that won't work - They both just say they've changed it, but the background remains the same.

    Thanks for the replies guys, managed after much messing to view wallpaper as a photo and then set it from there as Phenomenological described. Not sure why I have to go this long winded route but got there in the end. Onwards with fully personalising apps with help from the thread " Show me your Desire". Cheers guys
