How I became a hostage to a printer
This was a good read. Humorous, you’re a far better writer then I.

    Do you mean the icon that shows up for a CD?

    LOL. Glad you enjoyed the article. ;) I've since 'buried' that printer and gotten one which has treated me far better. I should probably blog about it as an update, but I've been too busy. Thanks! :)

    Do you mean the icon that shows up for a CD? Yes, I click Start, then My Computer, and the icons that show up there on my cd reader, I would like to change or add an icon to my own software, burned cd's. Do you know how to do this Koohisan?

    Yes, I do! :) You can use this technique for CDs/DVD/Flash drives.

    Wow, everything you showed me in the link you provided, I had done already, but I had for some reason had a “,1” after the ICON=Boom2.ico so it looked like this “ICON=Boom2.ico,1” I don’t know what the “,1” was telling Windows, but that is the reason it was not working. Thank you again for your efforts. Do you know what the “,1” does?

    I think it might have been used to specify that the icon was in an executable file. Since executables can contain multiple icons, the 1 would signify the first one. I'll have to look it up to be sure though, although I have seen what I just described in other places in Windows for sure. Thanks for approving my answer! I appreciate it! :)
