Introduction: Background to Our USB Devices

I suppose we all have tried to give background images to our desktop folders. How about setting the same background to our USB devices (Pen drive, Portable Hard Disks etc.)
Steps in changing the background of your USB device:

Step 1: Open a Notepad.

Step 2: Paste This Code

Code:
[ExtShellFolderViews] {BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}={BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC} [{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}] Attributes=1 IconArea_Image=background.jpg

Step 3: Save Notepad at Ur Drive As Desktop.ini and Your Picture

(name your_picture as background.jpg) in your USB device and refresh it, press F5

Step 4:

Leave your comments.

    I think this is a really cool idea, but I cannot get it to work. I wish I could. I'm running Win 7 64bit. and my flash drive is a HP. Any suggestions?

    FYI, this doesn't work in Vista, Win7, or Win8. So, you know, any of the systems Microsoft still supports.

    I dont know why but it seems like a hack of this sort would mot work for W8 a lot of things are locked down with this OS which is why its gonna be hard to budge the majority of us in the PC community to ever leave W7 and lrior OS.s

    It doesn't work in Windows 7, either.

    Working with Windows 7 Pro, 32 bit, and I cannot get this to work. Checked and double checked. Has any 7 user had success?

    Works like a charm indeed (Ganeshs232) in XP, for those where it doesn't work, be sure that the lines in desktop.ini have line feeds/carriage return's...
