This has only been tested with the Memorex U3 Mini TravelDrive

1. Go to the topic "Hacking Memorex U3 TravelDrive" to download/extract ResHacker and know how to fake upgrade it.

2. Extract "LaunchPad.zip" from your U3 CD-ROM.

3. Open up ResHacker and go to the extracted "LaunchPad" folder.

4. Double-Click on "Launchpad.exe"

5. Expand "GIF" There should have 3 folders with the Memorex logo in it.

These should be "602", "630", and "631". If this is true proceed to step 6. Otherwise this is a Memorex only thing.

6. Expand "GIF" | Expand "601"

7. Right-Click "1033" Then Click "Save [GIF : 601 : 1033]..."

8. Open "Paint" (You Know The Crappy Little Thing By MS)

Dont open in resource hacker.

9. Wherever you saved the resource open it in paint.

10. Now just try to capture the light blue side of the picture and copy it and then press "Ctrl+N" if it asks to save something press no.

11. Paste the light blue area in the blank white box. Make sure it fills the entire thing.

12. Ok now save that as "U3 Color"

13. Now Click the little "A" in the toolbox and stretch it on the screen. Make sure the color isnt overlapped by the text box.

14. Put whatever you want in the text box. Try to keep the image size to about "150, 25".

15. Now save that as "Logo.gif". Please dont try another extension.

16. Go back to resource editor. Now expand "602" in "GIF" then right-click "1033" click "Replace Resource..."

17. Click "Open file with new resource...". Go to your image and click "Open". For "Resource Type" type in "GIF". For "Resource Name" type in "602". For "Resource Language" type in "1033". Click "Replace".

18. Repeat the same for resources "630" and "631" replace the resource name with "630" and "631".

19. Save the file

20. Put it in the LaunchPad.zip folder.

21. Make an ISO with the LaunchPad.zip folder, autorun.inf, and LaunchU3.exe

22. Rename the iso to LaunchPad.iso and place in the U3_Launchpad_Updater_1_0_0_2/bin folder.

23. Run the hacked updater and enjoy your logo.
