Windows 7: Restore icon for external drive?

Restore icon for external drive?

Ok this is a minor issue, but annoying nonetheless... How can i restore the icon for my Seagate FreeAgent external drive? The icon is no longer displaying...the icon itself is on the drive, but i can't figure out how to make it show up under "my computer"...the icon itself, not the drive. I've gone through "properties"-"customize", to avail. I've tried the tutorials about restoring icons, but no luck.

Any ideas?

No installation needed, just run it and change that icon
