    LOL J.,

    Do not sell yourself short. Just ask questions for what you do not understand and I or someone will be sure to help the best that we can.

    Enjoy and have fun,

    Re: Drive Icon Change

    If I may ask Brink, what's the icon for the hard drive you used in the screenshot? Where can I find that?

    Hi Jim,

    It's the same one boxed in red below step 4 (How to Use a DLL OR EXE Icon Library File) in Method One. imageres.dll,30

    I believe you will only see that icon when it is used as a larger icon like for a shortcut instead of this smaller drive icon.

    I'm sorry, where can I find that and what would I enter into the registry key to use it?

    Also, we're talking about the black hard drive icon right?

    Jim,

    Nope, I thought you meant the default one. LOL

    It took a bit to find it again but here it is:

    HDD_Black.zip < Click to Download

    You can add it by using Method One in this tutorial and type the path of where you will have the icon stored in step 17.

    Hi Claustrawberry,

    As long as they each show up with a driver letter in Computer, then you should be able to change each icon for them per drive letter using Method Two.
