    I'm trying to change the icons for my USB flash drives. Unfortunately, They don't show up as volumes in CandyBar, so my only option is to Go into the system panel and change the icon for all removable drives. This creates a problem though, because if I do that .DMG files and Digital cameras all have the same icon. How can I fix it so that only the USB Flash Drives have a different icon?

    If you only have one or two, do them manually.

    Just Command-I (Get Info) on the USB Drive, and copy and paste the icon into it's spot.

    I guess I'm a little confused, dragging and dropping isn' changing the icon.

    You have to copy and paste, not drag and drop.

    When I control click my USB flash drive and open up get info, there's nowhere in the info window to paste anything. The icon is right there in the preview area, but if I drag and drop it just puts a copy of the icon onto the flash drive.

    Click on the little icon in the upper left and paste.

    You don't see what has the blue focus ring in my attachment?
