USB icon?

I know there is a way to use info files to make, for example, your USB stick get it's own icon in AmigaOS 4.x when you insert it. I used to have it like that on an old USB stick but I have forgotten how I did it. Putting an info file with the name "disk.icon" in root does not seem to cut it. Does anyone know what I should do?

edit: question mark

@Niolator

Try disk.info instead ;)

@petrol

That is of course what I meant. I must have been tired when I wrote it, or something.

I have a disk.info file already but maybe it isn't working right? I'll have to replace it to see if it makes any difference.

@Niolator

the disk.info file must have the correct type also.
Do you know how to replace icon files?
Just right click on the icon you want to change and select info and then drag another icon over to the info window where the icon is,
That way you don't have to worry about setting tooltypes etc, you'll just be changing the icon.

@smf

Thanks for the tip, but I am aware of that. There is a lots of icons by me on os4depot. That is the way how I have made most of them.

@Niolator

Right click on the default usb icon

choose "Information"

Drag any icon over the default USB icon and save...

...edit: @smf was faster

Not sure what you need else, this is the easiest way to change icons
