    How to set different Icons for portable devices in windows 7?

    I wan to set different Icons for portable or external drives. I have done this on my windows xp desktop where I inserted a text file with some sort of code and an image file. It changed the icon but the same procedure is not working in windows 7. I guess ,windows 7 need some other process or procedure for the same. Do you have any idea about it?

    There are the following steps to do this:-
    1.Make sure that the program you want to make default is fully installed.
    2.Otherwise, Windows can’t find them and doesn’t offer them.
    3Choose Start→Default Programs. Then click the bottom link: Set Program Access and Computer Defaults.
    4.You see the Set Program Access and Computer Defaults dialog box.
    5.Click the Custom down arrow and choose your default program choices for Web browser e-mail program , media player , and anything else.

    To set icons for portable devices in windows 7 follow these steps :-

    => Open notepad and type the following code :-

    [autorun]
    ICON=logo.ico


    => Now save the file as "file type = all files" , "file name = autorun.inf"

    => Now you need an ".ico" image and rename this image to "logo.ico"

    You can click here to get different .ico icons








    => Insert your external drive and copy the following file and .ico icon in it

    => Make these files hidden in your drive so that no one can change it .












    => Safely remove and insert your drive again you will now see your icon .
