    Open any folder and go to Tools/Folder Options, File Types Tab.
    Find your file type (mp3, wav, mid, aac etc etc) then click Advanced, Change Icon.
    You will probably have to tell the computer where the icons are, and they should be in C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\Icons
    Hope this helps.
