First of all put the iamge file ( eg. test.jpg) in the root of the Flash drive. Then create a text file there and rename it to desktop.ini to the root of the Flsh drive.. Make sure it's not a .txt file.

Then open the desktop.ini file in notepad and enter following content.

Code:

[ExtShellFolderViews]
{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}={BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}
[{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}]
IconArea_Image=test.jpg



>>.try it. :)

1.) Copy Paste the following code in the notepad and rename that notepad file to desktop.ini (Just make sure when you paste this code, the Double Quotes are in Notepad format otherwise type the Double quotes manually from your keyboard.)

[{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}]
iconarea_image="back.jpg"
iconarea_text="0xFFFFFF"

2.) Choose any image of your choice and rename it to back. jpg

3.) Copy Paste both these files (i.e. desktop.ini and back. jpg) into your USB device and make them hidden by selecting Properties -> Hidden Files.
That's it. You are done.

Just REFRESH your screen (of your USB device) and you will see your image on background.

villen97- May 27, 2010 at 12:29 AM
go to the TOOLS>FOLDER OPTIONS>VIEW> and uncheck the hide extensions of known files to reveal the ext. for changing purposes, The ext becomes part of the name of the file you rename the whole thing. But remember to go back and hide extensions when ur done or it could cause problem in ur day to day.
