Windows – How to change Hard Drive icons on Windows XP

I would like to know how can I change a Hard Drive icon under Windows XP. I know how to change folder icons, but how is it done for a Drive icon?

  • Okay, the way to do it with a removable drive (not sure if this works with, e.g. your hard drive), is to make an autorun.inf file in the root of the drive with these contents (e.g. in E:)

    [autorun]
    icon=drive.ico
    

    where drive.ico is the file name of the icon you want for your drive. Note that it should probably be on the same drive as the autorun file. You may wish to hide the icon file - this won't affect the display of the icon in any way.
