    I have some ISO files here with weird volume labels. I want to rename them to something I can easily remember.

    I know in Windows using either winiso or poweriso (both are non-free?) it can be done but I'm not so sure in OS X. I did search the net but nothing useful came up.

    Thanks! :)

    edit: I believe it's best explained with an example:

    I have an ISO file called "myiso.iso". When I double-click on the ISO file to mount it, it appears as "myweirdname" in Finder."myweirdname" is the ISO Volume name.

    Despite the name... the ISO file is just a container, it depends what is inside the ISO that will determine if the volume can be easily renamed or not (the file system might be ISO9660, but it might be UDF or something else). Sometimes you need to recreate the ISO (i.e. mount the ISO, duplicate it if it is read only, rename it, re-image the ISO). Read-only volumes, and file systems that can't be written by Mac OSX won't have a straight-forward solution.

    Can you be more specific on the contents?

    Aren't these names set when creating the iso files?
