    I made some custom hard drive/disk icons and I thought I'd share since I think they might be of use to other people, i have lots of friends who want the itunes drive one.

    Enjoy and maybe post some of your own ideas

    ^the torrent file containing all the icons

    Easy install for leopard-
    to set as the icon all you do is

    copy the .icns file you want
    go to get info on the drive/app/file/folder you want to change
    in the top right corner of the get info window there is a small icon.
    click it, it should get a blue glow
    now paste the .icns file

    its that easy

    enjoy!

    I know I'm opening an old thread but I was looking for an icon for my flash drive that's full of music and the iTunes one looks perfect, thanks for your work newbynate.

    Here are 3 icns files from the original psd. Differences are background and cropping.

    Where can I get them?

    Wow, these icons look great! But since thepiratebay is dead, is there another way to get them?
    Thanks!

    You sir are a gentleman, and a scholar! Thank you so much. I was trying to figure out how to do it myself, but to no avail...

    No problem. I used Img2icns if you want to do them yourself.
