How do you Assign a USB Flash Drive a new Icon?

In the main computer window I want to change the icon of my flashdrives but I don't know how. Is there a way?

All of my Thumb/Flash drives except one show a brand name when viewing in Windows Explorer or File Explorer. The one that doesn't is a Crucial drive. I've been wanting an icon for that one but haven't had any luck in finding out how the Verbatim and SanDisk do it yet. I can change the Label, give them a name, without problem.

Hi,

Using an Autorun.inf file, it's easy. We have a tutorial about changing drive icons here.
