The icon shown in the properties dialog is different to the icon shown
in the media:/ folder or the desktop. The properties dialog will show a
folder icon when the icon on the desktop was a usb key. I tried
changing the icon through the properties dialog but the icon was still
the same on the desktop. Showing the properties dialog again after the
change showed the original folder icon.
I think the key is finding out how the USB device classifications work
and where the media kioslave sets icon X for device type X, so my
question still stands.
It would be nice if KDE could have per device icon icon mappings which
would be set through the properties dialog so I could for example have
a pioneer icon for my pioneer cdrom or whatever.
