Was just playing around with my new USB Drive and realised you can create your own icon for Windows explorer.

1. Create an icon (duh!) – use Google to find an icon creator if you dont have one (e.g. GIMP or Paint.net with an addin) , and place in the root folder of your removable drive.

2. Create a text file (using notepad) called Autorun.inf (if there is already one it is likely to have an ico file setting already so all you need to do is change the ico file name).

The Autorun file only needs


icon = .\NameofIconFile.ico
