You can easily add a background to your USB flash disk or CD\DVD by following these steps.

1.Select the background you want and place in the folder or drive where you want to see it. rename it to back.jpg

2.In the same location, create a new file and name it desktop.ini

3. write the following code inside desktop.ini and save it

[ExtShellFolderViews] {BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}={BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC} [{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}] IconArea_Image=back.jpg

4.Exit the folder and open it again, and here is your fancy folder. To do this for a cd, burn the picture along with the desktop.ini files to the cd\dvd root.

One last thing is the choice of picture, what do you think is the best theme for a flash disc? Me I would go for some 3D images, maybe some games artworks ? what about you?
