hi, i have downloaded a firmware upgrade for a MP3 player, i have unzipped it, but the icon for it looks like a sheet of paper with the corner bent over with the windows logo in the middle, if i click properties it says hex file, which is what it is suppose to be, but my nerve has gone when it comes to dragging it into the root folder of the player.........what do you think..
When you have a Excel document on a PC that has Excel installed the document show the Excel Icon. Not because its built into the document but because Windows knows (for that PC anyway) to associate XLS files with Excel and so assigns it a Excel icon.
If the document is transferred to a PC without Excel it'll show the icon you described above. Windows (on that PC) doesn't have Excel and so doesn't know what to do with XLS files and shows the "unassociated" icon.
In your case a Hex file is just a data file. Most people don't really have a use for them so unless you added software that specifically handles Hex files it won't have an association.
