    I re-formated my new lacie drive, but before i did i pulled out the .VolumeIcon.icns file from it. So after i reformatted it mac os journaled the cool finder icons were gone. So i moved the .VolumeIcon.icns file back to the drive and rebooted, still the default icon.

    how do i get it to use the icons in .VolumeIcon.icns ?

    If you have the developer tools installed, fire up a terminal window and type:
    Code:
    /Developer/Tools/SetFile -a C "/Volumes/[volume name]/"
    
    For example, for the volume "USB300" the command is
    Code:
    /Developer/Tools/SetFile -a C "/Volumes/USB300/"

    Can anyone confirm this refreshes the icon with the volumeicon.icns file?
