HD Icon?

If it is on the desktop,
right click the mouse while on the icon, hit properties and hit the change icon button.

Hope it helps.

To change the icon of a Hard Drive in My Computer just create a file called "autorun.inf" in the root directory. Open the file in notepad, and enter the following text.

[AUTORUN]
icon=<Path to icon>

Where <Path to icon> is a part to an ico, dll or exe file (eg. c:\drive.ico)

To remove an icon from a drive.. simply delete the autorun.inf out of the root directory of the drive.

Hope I could help,
