My backup disk does not show any icon

My back up disk does not show any icon and I tried everything, I tried to change itīs icon to another but still no luck, everything else works fine.
What can be wrong? How can I fix it?

Thanks!!!

Hello Too,

Rebuilding the icon cache would not help with this, so I moved your thread here instead.

Check to see if a autotun.inf file mentioned in the yellow TIP box at the top of the tutorial below may be causing this for you instead.

Drive Icon - Change

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks for the help!
Too much for an icon trouble right?
Sorry for posting in the wrong place. It seems that it was something I haven't tried yet.
