External Hard Drive Icon Changed?

My computer froze today and when it restarted my external hard drive icon has changed from the yellow icon to a different one.

How do I get the old icon back I'm a bit confused

I'm a mac newbie by the way(less than a week)

edit
The external hard drive icon is also changed in the finder. It's changed to a grey icon from the yellow/gold one.
