But my old ipod mini that i want to use as an external hardrive on firewire uses this icon

While formating the ipod in disk utility it shows as the orange disk picture and then changes back to the standard white disk thing.

I hate the standrad white disk.The orange icon standard on other external harddrives i think.

Please please help. :) :unsure:

not sure why its doing that but you could always just manually change the icon to whatever you wanted it to be, i changed the default icon for my ipod, altho its still just an ipod not a formatted external disk, and now when i plug it in i always see the new icon, im assuming it would work for this since any icon is changeable
