How to put background on usb

I suppose we all have tried to give background images to our desktop folders. How about setting the same background to our USB devices (Pendrive, Portable Hard Disks etc.) as well? That background image will be seen on every computer you plug in that USB device.
It's really a 3 step process. Let's begin:-


1.) Copy and Paste the following code in a notepad and rename that notepad file to desktop.ini

[ExtShellFolderViews]
{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}={­BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}
[{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}]
Attributes=1
IconArea_Image=123.jpg



2.) Choose any image of your choice and rename it to 123 as my example.


3.) Copy and Paste both these files (i.e. desktop.ini and 123.jpg)into your USB device and make them hidden,right click both files>click properties>click hidden...

That's it. You are done.


Just REFRESH your screen and you will see your image on background.

So, how you feel about this technique?
