Windows 7: HDD namimg issue

HDD namimg issue

Hi

Mike here.
Been running x64 U for a while now. Recently noticed in when viewing My computer my 3 internal hdds only appear as 'Local Disc', even though I have hard coded the names in the registry.
I've tried renaming them of course but to no avail. Oddly, looking in device manager they appear to have the right names, but most other ways of seeing them it's local drive.

My 2 external HDDs are fine.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Mike

Had a look and came across this - Drive Name Change - Vista Forums

Taken from this thread - Custom HDD Volume Label Not Displayed in "My Computer"

Interestingly I was convinced I had done that ages ago, hence what I meant by hardcoding the changes. Edting the reg the DriveIcon key was there but nothing in it. Wonder if it got cleared by accident (reg cleaner program )
Anyhow, all working again, so thanks!!!
