Custom Icons for USB Flash Drives

Recently I was really bored with the same old icon that my USB shows everytime I plug it in. So I googled to do something about it. It seems there exists a way to show a custom icon everytime the drives parses the autorun.inf file.

Steps To Follow:

  • Create an Icon file with the file name extension .ico
  • Open notepad and type the following:

[autorun]
icon=autorun.ico

  • Here autorun.ico if the icon file I used
  • Place both these files on the usb flash drive

The next time you re-insert the drive, you should see the icon you specified instead of the boring age old image.
