View Full Version : icon for cd I have cut

I want to save an icon so that it shows Windows Explorer etc instead of just the default cd icon and the name of the cd.

Cover disks all seem to have this feature, but the icon must be hidden inside an exe or similar file.

In a similar vein, is it possible to associate an icon with a directory?

To customise your CD, create a new text file. Open this file using notepad and make the entry:
[autorun]
icon=myicon.ico

Save this file as autorun.inf in the root directory of your CD along with your icon file (this can be created with any bitmap or icon editor).

For an example look at any of the PC World Plus CD's

Thanks Tristan
It worked a treat - except that I had to rename myicon.ico to myicon.exe (as well as the reference in the .inf file).
