    To Change Icon of Drivers in Windows 7:-

    Open "Regedit" and navigate to; HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ClassesExpand "Classes" and scroll down to "Applications" (if that key does not exist, create it by right clicking on "Classes", then "New", then "Key", name it, then hit Enter)Under "Applications" expand "Explorer.exe", then "Drives" (if neither of those sub-keys exist, create "Explorer.exe" by right clicking "Applications", then "New", then "Key", name it, then hit Enter, create "Drives" by right clicking "Explorer.exe", then "New", then "Key", name it, then hit Enter)


    Now, under "Drives" create new keys for each drive using the drive letter as the name, then under each drive, create a new sub-key and name it "DefaultIcon"

    When finished it look`s like this :-

    Hello friend,


    I will help you to solve your problem just do as i say.......

    To change the icon of the drive you need the 'autorun.inf' file.

    1.Go to the drive which you want to change icon.

    2.Then make a right click on empty space.

    3.And go to the 'New' and click on 'Text Document' name it as 'autorun.inf'.

    4.Now make the autorun file open.

    5.Then type
    [Autorun]
    icon="the name of the icon.ico".

    6.If you are doing for a Internal or eSATA drive resatrt your computer.

    7.If it for thr external drive unplug and plugin the drive.

    That's it you can see that the icon of your drive will be changed.

    All the best................
