Help Please: I changed my Folder icons and now in Finder Sidebar the lil icons r gone

I changed my icons in my Profiles home directory (Music, Applications, Library ,Pictures etc) and the side bar icons in the finder window arent just the icon, it shows the folder too. When i changed it back it was still like that, just with the default icons.

Is there any way to fix this? please help

I think the large icons is a "system" icon preference. I don't think you can change them the way you want to without a program like Candybar...

by changing just the folder icon It must have messed up the sidebar.

I have two different icons one for sidebar and one for the folder that the sidebar goes to for movies, music, and photos, but I use candybar to change things.

Not sure how to get it back to the default. Have you tried to remove the item from the sidebar and readding it to see if you can get it back to default? It appears that two different icons are in control, one the user editable folder icon (just by cutting and pasting) and the other being a "system" controlled icon that can't be messed with unless you play with terminal or have a program like candybar.

You might be able to download the Candybar trial and get things back to normal. I think you get five uses of candybar before you have to register it.
