.ICO files for Windows (XP & Vista) Explorer
1 Attachment(s)
If you want your Cowon O2 player to show up in your explorer shell when you plug in the USB port, just follow the directions:

Open the attached .ZIP file. Extract the files called Autorun.ini and Cowon O2.ico to the root of your player. Of course your player must be in MSC format to do this.

Once extracted to the root folder of your O2, then unplug your device from the USB port. Wait for the refreshing of your files, or if it shuts down. Plug it back in again, and voila! You're up and running with your new icon in your window.

The area of your file explorer shell for Removable Storage should look similar to this:

Note: The Cowon S9 icon file is included with the ZIP file, in case you have both devices. You will then have to edit the Autorun.ini file when you drop it to your S9 to open the Cowon S9.ico file instead of the O2 file.

Happy computing!

What I did was use the app called IcoFX (free!). I then found some good quality (large) pictures of the Cowon O2, and the S9 on the web. Inserted each picture into a single ICO file multiple times with the program, so I would get the varying sizes:

Then saved the ICO file to my device, correctly edited the Autorun.ini file, and it worked.

Yeah, you can use it for any removable disk, drive, card, drive, etc. I've done it for my SDHC cards. If I have to format them, I have the .ico files stored on my HDD.

It sure is neat, and now since there is a visual aid to help me with figuring out which drive is which, I love it.

Thanks a lot - I'm going to definitely start using this with my S9!

Tell the truth, I don't even have an O2, else I'd be using this for that as well.
