How to change DVD drive icon label by replacing the default one.


S

Soar

Good evening to all!
I renamed the DVD drive icon label (NOT the letter, but just the name) by
using the steps listed below:

1) I create a new key called "DefaultLabel" in the following key:

KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\DriveIcons\E\

("E" is the letter associated to my opticsl drive)

2) I selected it and I right clicked the (Default) value in the right
explorer pane;

3) I selected "modify", and then entered what I want to call my drive.

This procedure only appends the label to the drive's name and letter, and
not do any replacement.

In Windows 7 Home Premium (x64 platform) is there a way to completely
substitute the dvd drive label?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
