Answers :

There are two ways to create a drive-specific\015\012icon. The first step for both is to determine the full pathname of the\015\012file containing the icon you want, as well as the index of the icon\015\012within that file. To view the icons contained in an EXE or DLL file,\015\012right-click any shortcut that links to a file (as opposed to a system\015\012shortcut like My Computer) and choose Properties. On the Shortcut tab of the resulting dialog, click the Change Icon button. Click Browse\015\012and select the file whose icons you want to peruse. When you find the\015\012one you want, count off the icons to determine the correct index. Start\015\012in the top left corner with zero and count down each column, then to\015\012the right. For example, icon 12 in C:\\ Windows\\System32\\Shell32.dll is\015\012a picture of a memory chip. Make a note of the full pathname of the\015\012file and the icon index, then click Cancel, and Cancel again—you don't actually want to change that shortcut's icon. The Microsoft Windows files moricons.dll and progman.exe, both found in C:\\Windows\\System32, also contain numerous icons.
\015\012One technique for assigning a drive-specific icon uses a file named\015\012Autorun.inf in the root directory of that drive. Launch Notepad and\015\012enter [autorun] on the first line. Enter ICON= on the\015\012second line, followed by the full pathname of the icon-holding file, a\015\012comma, and the icon index. It might look like this:
\015\012[autorun]
\015\012ICON=C:\\WINDOWS\\SYSTEM\\SHELL32.DLL,12
\015\012Save the file as "C:\\autorun.inf" (you need the quotes to prevent\015\012Notepad from appending the .txt extension). Now restart the computer.\015\012When you open Windows Explorer, the drive should display its new icon.
\015\012The other technique involves editing the Registry. Launch RegEdit from the Start menu's Run dialog and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\
CurrenTVersion\\Explorer.
If a subkey named driveicons is present, open it; if not, right-click in the right-hand pane, select New | Key and name the key driveicons. Under the driveicons key, find or create a subkey named C (or the letter of the drive whose icon you want to change). And under this C key find or create a subkey named DefaultIcon.\015\012Double-click the (Default) entry in the right-hand pane and set its\015\012value to the full pathname of the icon-holding file, a comma, and the\015\012icon index. Again you'll need to restart Windows.
\015\012If one of these techniques seems not to work for you, try the other.\015\012If you apply both to the same drive, the Autorun.inf file takes\015\012precedence.


I hope this will solve your issue.

Good Luck.

If my solution proves useful please accept it.
