[As you can see I have named my 320Gb WD Passport as TK-320 and put a stormtrooper icon on it, my 4Gb Pirate Nero drive is named NERO ]
If you have a lot of USB sticks or HDD drives (ATM: I have 17 and 2 respectively) it may become confusing which is which. Sure naming them would help but having a custom icon is way better :P
It’s pretty simple and straight forward.
Create a Text Document
Copy and paste this code (3 lines total):
[autorun]Modify the code to fit your requirements
Rename as autorun.inf
Copy autorun.inf and your icon file to the root (no folders) of your drive.
The next time you plug-in your device you should see your custom icon & drive name.
