    Hi Guys,

    I cannot rename my DVD-r in "My Computer". I tried right-click, properties on it, but the area is greyed out. I also tried in the Disk Manager to no avail. Would I be able to rename it in the registry?

    Thanks in advance,

    Heeter

    tried admin tools, disc management? On a separate note why not just put a shortcut to it on your desktop and rename that as you wish? That's what I do and it works fine for me....
     
  4. no elektro his problem doens't have to do with software problem.
    usually the optical drive takes the name of the disk inserted, i haven't tried renaming an optical drive before but you can try clicking on it and pressing F2 to rename it...
    or you can try this

    The DVD-r is my optical drive, so I thought this would be the right section.

    Mainframe, I did try that.

    I am thinking that should be able to rename the optical drive through the registry.
