Can't get mounted drives on Desktop, no customized icon

When I plug in my external drive or usb or insert a dvd, it does not appear on the desktop automatically. I have to access it through finder.
How do I do it? Is it in the system preference somewhere?
In windows always used customized icons for my drives. I guess the autorun.inf file does not work in Mac. How do I use my own icons for external drives? If there is a post already (can't find it by search) and someone knows it, please give me the link.
Thanks in advance for any help.There's something you lose for everything you win
But once you get Mac, you always lose Win

open Finder - Preferences - General tab - Show these items on the Desktop
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
