    I want to be able to change the icon of my Windows partition in OSX from the drab HDD one. So, when I tried to copy and paste a new .icn file in Get Info, it wouldn't paste. I think it is because the drive is set as read only. in disk utilities, the "repair disk permissions" is greyed out when windows drive is selected.

    thanks in advance!!!

    Are you using FAT32 or NTFS? OS X can't write to NTFS without additional software (I don't know the specifics).
