View Full Version : Messed Up External Hard Drive Icon

09-05-2010, 10:37 PM
The icon for my USB External Hard Drive (labeled as USBEXT) is messed up. In the Send To context menu, as well as in the Computer folder, and the sidebar of Windows Explorer, it shows up as if the proper icon is missing?

Anyone know of a possible solution? Just the default drive icon next to the label would be nice but I'm also wondering how I could customize all of the icons in Windows 7 for hard drives, folders, music files, etc. I remember there were programs that did such things in previous versions of Windows and didn't know which of them, if any, would work with Windows 8. Thank you in advance for your help!

PS: I apologize for my overwhelming amount of noobness...

Is there any indication for you by your windows operating system? How about trying your USB on other computers, if they can recognize it, then iut might be the probelm of your driver problem. Try reinstall the driver.

For the change of the hard drives, folders, music files icon, you can also achieve that. Take a folder for example. Right click on the folder--properties--customize--change the icon.
