Changing drive icons/labels for multi-card readers in My Computer
I recently added a multi-card reader to my desktop running Vista Premium. Now
in My Computer, I have 4 drive letters, and each is labeled as "Removable
Drive". I've been experimenting trying to get them to show up with an icon
that corresponds to the type of card that particular drive reads. Now I'm no
whiz, but so far what I've been able to figure out is this:
If I use the registry and navigate to:'
HK_LOCAL MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\explorer
and then add a new Key called "DriveIcons" I can add new Keys under that for
each Drive to specify the icon and label. So what I have is:
In each of those, I'm able to specify a label and an icon to show up in My
Computer. Most people would be happy, but I found out that there's a way to
make the drive show two different icons, one icon when a card is inserted,
and a different when no card is inserted. I found this out by downloading a
driver package for a different brand of card reader and opening the .inf file
The thing is, i can't figure out how to do this with my card reader.
Does anyone know what I'm talking about, and what I can do to make it work?
