DVD drive icon



I need to change the icon for my dvd drive but i cant seem to find where im supposed to change it in the registry. I have a dvd drive and a cd-rw with drive letters m and n respectively. I can find the key where the shell icons are stored (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\current version\explorer\shell icons) and I can change the icon for the cd-rw by changing the value of # 11 in this key, but there is no value that changes the dvd drive icon (see http://www.virtualplastic.org/html/icn_reg.html ) I'm pretty sure that they can be seperate icons cuz the one visible now is different and a little mangled and there is an icon in shell32.dll,177 that has a dvd drive overlay. Can anybody help me out???

what about those theme/icon changing programs?
I think there may be a link to one in downloadssection

i remember vaguely changing icons in win2k using XP icons a while back....check it out


thanks.....i tired that program but it doesnt let you edit drive icons.......ive used one that does (icon packager by stardock) But that doesnt let you pick a different icon for each drive. Any other good icon chaging programs?


I found a program that lets you do it, but I read that xp doesnt let you have different icons for different drives yet. It seems true since i changed it and it went back after i restarted. Oh well.

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
