i am on windows xp. it just looks like 98/2k cuz its on the 98/2k visual style settings.

(sorry for the blurry pic, it got like that when i resized it.)
You can replace the hard drive icons with ease. Just follow these steps:

1. Put the icon you want to use on the root of the drive.
2. Create an autorun.inf file on the root of the drive and put this in it:


Change "icon.ico" to the name of your icon.
3. Reboot or do whatever to get it to reload the icons.

Done and done. Autorun isn't just for CD's anymore.

If the drive is removable, you can do all sorts of other things with it too, check this web page for details on how to use the autorun.inf file:
or activicons. Just search on google for 'ActivIcons' without the quotes :)
or just look at the sticky in the ICONs forum tells how to do it
Do a Google search for E-Icons or IconPackager. They are both able to change all the icons you mentioned.

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???
