I've been trying to get my comp to display an Icon for my back up disk, but it won't display it!
I've typed it all out correctly and the label 'back_up' comes up OK, but the Icon doesn't. I also tried it on the neighbors and it is displayed there perfectly, so it does work, just not on my comp.
strangely the PC World disk Icon works fine here, so I'm stuck. the Autorun.inf data is the same (except for the names)

any ideas anyone for a fix?

Thanks Trev

does it look like this?

A simple Autorun.inf example:
[autorun]
open=autorun.exe
icon=autorun.ico

if not what does it look like?

[Autorun]
icon=camera.ico
label=Back_ups

It looks like that! and it does work on the neighbors comp..

it is not something stupid like the uppercase A in Autorun, I have banged my head in the wall a few times due to similar problem

Just tried that thanks Eric and unfortunately no-go.
I was thinking it may be a setting I have on this comp as it does work on the neighbors...

label=Back_ups makes it say 'Back_ups' under where the icon should be (that bit works).
The icon I do get incidentally, shows a white file with other coloured squares inside, like a system file...

oh yes and I'm on XPh
