Devices and printers in start menu

Ok, i love this feature where w7 recognizes my hardware and adds icons to match ,however not all my products model numbers are available thus rendering the feature useless for external h drives etc.
Question:- is is there any way to give the system this information or to change the default icons manually?

You would need to change the DDORes.dll file in a program like resorator.

If you got to Customization and look at the sticky Custom Themes,Icons and Start Button you will see some sets from Mr Grim.

But im sure if you pm and ask Mr.Grim he can give you the exact icon in DDORes.dll that changes the Icons in printer and devices,as i dont have a clue.
