Can anyone tell me how to change the Name property of my USB thumb drive. I changed the mount point but the name proberty stays the same.

Thanks,
Dale

I think that may be hardcoded into the drive.

I'm not certain what you mean by name property. If you are referring to the drive label, see the following:

I too would be interested in this solution.

The names are not hard coded. If you go to a Windows machine and rename the stick it transfers to Ubuntu. In the new hardy it just says something like:

4.2GB Volume

not the name.
