    I used iDVD to burn a disk image of a project I am working on.

    When I double click to mount the volume, the mounted volume has the name MY_GREAT_DVD.

    When I get info, it says this a read only file.

    How can I change this name?

    I need to send this .img to another company and MY_GREAT_DVD just sounds really arrogant and I would love to change this.

    I saw nothing in iDVD that would allow me to set this name, either.

    Thanks in advance.

    Once its burned to a dvd it's stuck that way unless its a dvdrw disk and if you still have the disk image on your HD you're better off erasing it and re burning the disk. If its just a dvdr it's set for life.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I haven't burnt any disks yet.

    I am just trying to change the name of the mounted volume when it appears on the desktop after double clicking the .img.

    I wish iDVD just used the .img file name to name the volume, but it names it MY_GREAT_DVD instead.

    which is annoying as it is such a stupid name.

    Try Project->projectinfo

    (Not sure, I don't use iDVD anymore.)

    Grtz, Richard

    Thank you, Richard!

    I knew I had to be missing something easy.

    Thanks again!
