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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
