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.

open Finder - Preferences - General tab - Show these items on the Desktop

- Go to the Finder/Desktop
- "Finder" drop down menu
- select "Preferences"
- click on the "General" icon at the top-left of this window
- check all appropriate boxes under the "Show these items on the desktop:" heading
