Windows 7: Unable to change drive icons in Win 7

Unable to change drive icons in Win 7

Hi all. I can't get Win 7 HP to change the icon for drives on my PC. I right click on a drive, click on properties/customize/Folder Picture/ choose file. I select a icon file and click on Apply. Nothing happens.

I have a collection of Old Time Radio shows that has 12 drives and over 1300 folders, some of which I would like to change the icons of. Using the tutorial I found on this site would take me a VERY LONG time.

Thanks for any input and help with this.
