Icon in My Computer

  daz246 21:06 10 Feb 2008

I have a C:drive, a partitioned D:drive and an external WD hard drive. The WD drive in My Computer appears without anykind of icon, just the usual missing file icon. Is there anyway to change this to the WD icon that appears on my Desktop, or to one similar to my C:drive??

Right Click the icon shown and select properties, then select the shortcut tab, then change icon, select a nice one from here...

Thanks for the reply but that doesn't work. When I right click I get a General (Pie of space), AutoPlay, Tools, Hardware and Sharing tabs. No shortcub tab. Anyother ideas?

If you have a stray autorun.inf file in the root of the drive it will look for the autorun.ico that is referenced in the file, if that file isn't there, `missing icon` er..icon. Remove the autorun.inf file
