    I am trying to add an icon to my USB drive and it is acting really weird ...

    The folder on the left is my USB drive I am trying to change ... The folder on the right is a random folder that it works fine on.

    Why it it trying to display an older icon I used on another folder weeks ago? Anyway to get around this?

    Click the arrow by Sharing & Permissions on that "Get Info" window and check your permissions.

    This .... before and afters ...

    I added a third folder to show that your way works, just not with this kingston flash drive folder ...

    Very strange. It should work on any folder or drive. It sounds like a permissions issue of some sort.

    I am thinking so, the drive is passworded - due to it being made that way by Kingston. Although, I am signed into the drive and everything, so I am not sure why it will not let me change things on it.
