How To Make Favicon For Flash Drive

6 September 2009 No Comment

It’s just several easy steps.  Lets begin.

  1. Using a program to create an image file, make a jpeg for what you want the ico to look like.  You can use something as simple as Microsoft Paint or something as fancy as Photoshop.  When you make the jpeg, make the overal shape square.  Try and keep the logo simple – simple will translate best into an ico file.
  2. Browse to Chamie and click the “Favicon from Pics” link.  Upload your file.  Chami will automatically generate your ico file.  Chami gives you some great options for the USB favicon file.  You can get a static image or an animated .gif file.
  3. Once you have the .ico file, save that image to the root of your USB flash drive.
  4. Next, open Notepad in Microsoft [or any plain text editor] and type the following:

[autorun]
icon=favicon.ico

Save this to the root of your USB stick as “autorun.inf

Once you’ve done all the above, disconnect your USB stick and reconnect it to your PC.  Now you will see the favicon flash drive.  This is also a great method [using Chami that is] for making customized shortcut icons on your desktop or ico files for your website.

Nice, simple & quick.  Enjoy.
