Hey all, anyone know how to change the icons as above to an icon?

At the mo, it's kind of like a diamond under where it shows DVD/CD rom drives, on my other PC here. And its a diamond shaped icon under the CD and DVD as well.

I've deleted it then rebooted. No change. It's not a major prob. BUT it'd be better if it look like a proper icon!

Any ideas?? how to fix this??

Umm no, this pc hasnt got shellicons, and I dont use Resource hacker, whatever this is.

Not to worry, I ran regedit and searched for DVD/Cd-rom. All i had to do was make a new string value icon = -51. That fixed the icon to a cd one, in device manager

Thanx for the info
