    If you mean the shortcut icons on the desktop..easy. If you mean in My Computer..No.

    On the desktop, hightlight the icon, go to Properties .. Shortcut .. Change Icon.

    With the Cd-Rom, DVD and CD-Writer, you need to have a disc in the drive to be able to change the icon.

    As for the C: or any HDD icon, do it exactly the same way.

    You can download icons from the net and use them instead of the ones supplied with XP.

    even with the enhanced version of Icon Packager
    it still can't be done due to some kind of security scheme
    it'll look like u did it that first time u apply the theme
    but once u do a reboot it reverts back to the default
    this is only the case on CD/DVD rom drives

    I notice this as well. It does the same thing to me with the My computer Icon too for some reason. It keeps going back to default. Is this something with SP1 I wonder? I was using the patched uxtheme.dll, but I did not have the file changed in my dll cache too and my styles would stop working, so I just installed StyleXP.

    I hope they can get this fixed in Icon Packager.

    I'm using the demo version right now. I wouldn't think that would matter though would it?

    well ive been able to change the icons for the cd-rom (using icon packager)... but its basically the same icon for a CD-writer-- dvd rom and cd rom. By default it would actually label these. Also they had different icons for different media. For example if you were to load a music cd... the icon would change from a cd-rom to a cd disc with those music notes (not sure what they're called). That was my original question mainly
