Question Thumb drive icon

My USB drive used to look like figure 1.. now it looks like 2.
Any idea what could have caused this and does it affect performance?

Doesn't matter what the Icon looks like. Can you read/write okay? If so, just ignore the difference.

correct me if I'm wrong...

but the first icon represents a removeable drive...

the second represents a hard drive(or something along those lines)

this shouldn't effect performance or function... I'd assume it happened from a driver update or something...
