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.

cant you just right click on the icon and then click on change icon!? Or is this an icon that comes up every time you plug in a usb device..if so just ignore..i wont mind

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.
