    Changing icons on files stored on USB


    I have a set of files which will be copied to hundreds of flashdrives. I need to permanently change the icons on the original/master files, guaranteeing they'll look identical on each flashdrive.
    The answer has to be contained on the original flash drive which becomes the MASTER for the rest.
    Make sense?
    Do-able?
