Windows 7: Unable to relabel drive?

Unable to relabel drive?

I installed a LaTeX package known as ProTeXt. It appears to have renamed the drive that held the installer files. I have been unable to rename the drive, and the name/label has persisted across several reboots.

Here's a picture that shows that the drive supposedly has no label and cannot be renamed/relabeled:

What am I missing? I am able to rename my other drives using either the "Properties" dialog or via the "label" command.

Hello Dondon,

For a DVD drive, you should be able to use Option Three in the tutorial below to name it.

Drive - Rename

Hope this helps,

Option 2 ended up working. I never thought to check for an autorun.inf file, but there was one and it was forcing the label. Deleted it and I was able to rename (or unname, I guess) the drive.

Thanks!
