What does it say in its Properties for what opens the drive (if anything)?

Try:

File, Drive, and Folder Open Fix
Not quite sure I know what you mean. I usually have the external HD off, turn it on when I need it and no icon. When I click on what you have as a link that is all foreign to me as well lol, sorry

Right-click the link and download the vbs file. Double-click it to run it to set the drive and folder options to their default settings. Many AV don't like vbs files, but this one is completely safe.

Dl'ed it, double clicked it, next thing I saw was "FINISHED". Nowhere did I have an opportunity to do anything. Still no icon on external HD

Great. What did you end up doing?

For others trying to solve this problem, try:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\Shell Icons\7: "shell32.dll,6"
