I have a 30 gig HD totally dedicated to Mp3's is there any way I can change the HD Icon to something else?

As a matter of fact there is :D . I just tried an old trick that used to work with Windows 98 and it works with XP too. Open up notepad and make a file called "autorun.inf" and put this information in it:

[autorun]
icon = any_folder_you_want\a_cool_icon.ico >>> or just:
icon = a_cool_icon.ico <<< just put the autorun.inf file and the icon in the root of the drive/partition.

I don't know why, but this wouldn't work with WinME or 2k. But it works on my XP machine.

autorun.inf has to be on the root of the drive, but you can put the icon anywhere. When you get those files copied to the drive, you'll need to reboot for XP to pick it up. I tried just logging out but it didn't work, need to cold boot.

Here's a icon if you don't have one handy:

Thanx. I have an older version of StylesXP right now. I'll have to go look and see if they have their themes available as separate downloads.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
