    I have two drives on my computer (a DVD and a CDRW) but the label for both is "CD Drive". I was wondering how I could label one "DVD Drive" and the other "CDRW Drive". I have tried diskmgt.msc but I dont believe you can rename the drives there, only your hard disks. Can anyone help? THanks!

    I didnt think you could change the title of your cd drives. I have had the same pronlem before. Sometimes they just say "cd drive". The only way I have gotten them back to normal is by reinstalling.
