Unable to give a name to USB flash drives

Some USB flash drives do NOT like being named. They're just so shy they want to be anonymously referred to as "Removable Disk". They all work fine but this naming demonstration will NOT be tolerated. Either they conform or I'll crush them under my boot.

It would be interesting to know the manufacturer/ model/capacity of the pen drives. Would you be willing to name them so that we can analyse the problem?

Where did you buy them? What capacity and what price? Also can you post a picture of the other side of the pendrive where the model and capacity is labled?

jumanji, they are cheap USB flash drives... only place I've seen these for sale is in your local supermarkets and play.com.
