Removable Drive Icons

Posted on December 14, 2006

I use several different types of removable media since both of my digital cameras each use a different type.  I decided to get rid of my several different card readers and buy the SanDisk ImageMate 12-in-1 USB 2.0 Card Reader at my local Best Buy.  This thing is cool, cause like the product name says, it supports 12 different types of media.

It was confusing enough for me to having all these drives listed as "Removable Drive (n)" in My Computer, so I did a little search online and came across just what I was looking for over at Chris Pirillo's Blog.  I was looking for a way to change the drive icon as well as the default volume label.  Chris has a link to a zip that he created which includes the cool icon images as well as a registry file that you can import after a little editing.

I liked the initial icons, but searched some more and since I recently upgraded to Vista, I had to find something a little more fancy.  I found some cool removable drive icons designed by nukeypearce over at deviantART.

Here is the final result:
