    1) Get Info on the HD icon, select the icon in the window that opens and paste your new icon.

    2) Finder (Desktop) -> View -> Show View Options -> Show Item Info

    Which icon in the Dock?

    Try looking at CandyBar to change icons.. otherwise, if you change the icon of the folder or app it should update automatically on the Dock.

    Click the drive and Get Info (Cmd-I). To make it display permanently, go to View -> Show View Options and tunr on Show Item Info (this is all from memory as I don't currently have a Mac :eek: so the steps might be slightly different).

    well i figured it out. you basically do the same thing that you told me, except you don't go to info on the harddrive, but instead for the desktop.

    Under finder click view > show view options (or just cmd + J) then check show item info
