i do not know if i understand you correct; you want to put a password on a usb flash drive? then you can use a zip program and password protect it, or use the password protection in Word or Excel
or use this :

I would suggest something like TrueCrypt...

This is a free program that should do what you want.  It easily creates a place for your to store any/all of your data and lock it up with a password.  You can use the entire USB drive, or you can create a file on the USB drive (that acts like another drive) and password protect it.  It's quite flexible, and can be used with other devices like hard drives, etc as well.  One neat thing is that it can create a hidden volume inside another one so that it's hidden and nobody knows that it's there!
