I believe you can in a similar manner to a CD, you put an ico file on the USB drive along with an autorun ini which refers to the ico file.

First create a folder called 'autorun' on your USB drive and copy the icon you want it to have in here.

Next create a text file called autorun.ini (make sure it does end in ini, not txt) and enter the following text:

[autorun]
ICON=AUTORUN\ICON.ICO

Where ICON.ICO is your icon file which you've put in the autorun folder, that should do as you want.
