make an auto run, if you bought it you have to make a new one, paste this as an autorun:

[autorun]
icon=youriconsname.ico


the icon has to be an ico but it may work for a small jpg to, the size of most avatars.


just like the autoruns on all cds and that should work.

open note pad past what i wrote inserting the name of the .ico file in what you paste, also that .ico goes on the cd to.save calling it autorun.inf. Im not really 100% sure if this works it been forever since ive done that.

other sites all say this is a good freeware to use aswell:

Default Re: Need help with changing CD icon

I dont want to make the icons, I already got them. I made them using another program

ok, After I got the icon, (the name of the icon is MSOFFICE.ico)

would my autoroll file look like this?

Code:
[autorun]
OPEN=SETUP.EXE
ICON=MSOFFICE.ico,0

shell\configure=&Configure...
shell\configure\command=SETUP.EXE

shell\install=&Install...
shell\install\command=SETUP.EXE
and do I put the ICO file and the AUTORUN file in after the disk has been created? or before
