Wow, I must admit that I'm at a loss as well for why the drive won't show the specified icon.

Great information

I am an icon freak, i make them from jpg, and use them for everything. For my default drives I was having trouble with iPhone, iPod Shuffle, and Nano, & iPad. with this info I am going in deep for this. Hopefully I can bypass the rotten apple safegaurds. Thanks again

Hello drugo,

It may be because it's encrypted, and Windows cannot access the icon to show.

As a test, you might see if OPTION THREE may work better for this.

So is that a file container (encrypted folder) or an encrypted drive?
