    Right click on the HDD and Click Get Info. Should just be a case of clicking on the top HDD icon and pressing CMD+V to paste the copied icon over the top of the standard one.

    I just tried it with you JPG and it doesn't work...I think it may need to be a different file format.

    Yeah I tried that and I ended up with ...


    Open the PNG file in Preview, click on it, press CMD+A, press CMD+C, go to the Get Info window of the file/folder/volume you want to change the icon of, click on the icon on the top left, thus it has a blue line around it, press CMD+V.

    Success !! thnx man ;)
