    DVD-RW is displayed as 'SuperDrive' on OSX.
    CD-RW+DVD was displayed as 'ComboDrive' on OSX.

    But, 'Blu-Ray RE' is displayed real device name..

    How can i change this like 'UltraDrive' or 'GreatDrive'....'SuperiorDrive?

    Thanks for reading!

    You normally can't but you might be able to do so by editing a file inside an Extension located in the Extensions Folder, you need root access to do so and you can mess up.

    For instance, I found this .plist file in:
    /System/Library/Extensions/AppleStorageDrivers.kext/Contents/PlugIns/PioneerSuperDrive.kext/Contents/Info.plist

    But it says PioneerSuperDrive in the .plist file.

    I have never really thought about this before but this is something I would really be interested in. As it stands my drives are labeled:

    HL-DT-ST BD-RE BH10LS30
    HL-DT-ST BD-RE BH10LS20

    Interesting!

    I found something in the next folder down:
    /System/Library/Frameworks/DiscRecordingUI.framework/Version/A/Resources/English.lproj/DevicePicker.strings

    In that file:

    /* No Device Message */
    "NoDevice" = "No Devices Available";

    /* Locations */
    "top" = "Upper";
    "bottom" = "Lower";
    "left" = "Left";
    "right" = "Right";

    /* Drive Types */
    "CD-ROM" = "CD-ROM Drive";
    "CD-R/RW" = "CD-R/RW Drive";
    "DVD-ROM" = "DVD-ROM Drive";
    "DVD-RAM" = "DVD-RAM Drive";
    "COMBODRIVE" = "Combo Drive";
    "SUPERDRIVE" = "SuperDrive";

    /* Format string for multiple internal device menu title. English would read like 'Upper SuperDrive' (location drive name) */
    "%@ %@" = "%1$@ %2$@";
