    I use CandyBar but I think it replaces all your USB icons. Couldn't find a decent PNG for a WD Passport, tho.

    Copy (command + C) the icon you want to use. In your desktop, right click on its icon (command + I) then click get info. On the window that opens, click on the drive's icon on the top then command + V.

    ok, i already know how... the icons must be in .icn format, so i converted it first. then i think it doesn't change automatically. Because in my case, i need to change something pa, like a file name before it the icon changed.
