    Hi.
    Follow the below steps:
    >> Start > Run > Regedit
    >>Go to the following key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer\DriveIcons\D\Default Label
    Assuming D is the name of your drive letter.
    In the left explorer pane.
    >>If there is no DriveIcons Key you will have to make one. (hi-light the Explorer key, then right click and select New Key, name it DriveIcons.
    >>Assuming D is the letter of your CD/[COLOR=blue !important]DVD drive[/COLOR].
    >>If there is no key named D(or whatever your drive letter is) you will have to make the key, (hi-light the DriveIcons Key and right click and select New Key, name it to whatever your drive letter is) eg: D
    >>If you have two drives, you will have to make keys for each drive, eg: D: & F: or whatever the drives letters are. (then follow below.)
    >>Then create a key named DefaultLabel, (create one by right-clicking the key for your drive "in this case, D" and selecting New > Key. name it DefaultLabel)
    >>If you have two drives you will have to make a key named DefaultLabel for each drive letter, see 3 above.
    Now in the right explorer pane
    >>Then change the (Default) value to the label you want. to do this right click the (Default) value and select modify, then enter what you want to call your drive. if you have two drives you will have to change both (Default) values for each drive.

    Thank you.

    For Windows 7,

    Click COMPUTER > Right click on LOCAL DISK Cor whichever name you are having for your drive) > Click RENAME.

    For Windows of previous versions:

    Open My Computer.
    From My Computer, right-click the drive you wish to rename and click Properties.
    Within the Properties window, type the new name in the "Label" box and click ok.

    Take those action to change the Label/name of the drive.

    Thanks.
