Hello Core7,

Since this is a external drive, did you use OPTION ONE in the tutorial below?

Drive Icon - Change

If you did, then could you upload you icon in a ZIP file. The 128x128 size could be the problem, but I'll take a look at it to see if it may work or not for me as well.

You're most welcome Core7. I'm happy to hear that you got it sorted.

You could create a new thread in the "Customization" forum asking if someone could help you with the icon. I'm sure someone would be along sometime to help.
