    Hi all,
    Lately I have grown tired of seeing "Untitled" underneath my Windows drive when in OS X. Before I tried partitioning in Disk Utility before running boot camp. Boot Camp though did not like the partition and so I was forced to repartition the drive. I have tried this both on my MBP and my MP, using a second internal disc on the MP.

    What I am looking to do is to change permissions on the drive so I can rename it in terminal. I just don't know what I would need to enter into the command line to do this.

    This is what I got o far. After entering my password it looks like it has executed, but says Read only file..

    synth3tiks-computer:/Volumes synth3tik$ mv Untitled Vista
    mv: rename Untitled to Vista: Read-only file system
    synth3tiks-computer:/Volumes synth3tik$ sudo mv Untitled Vista
    Password:
    mv: rename Untitled to Vista: Read-only file system


    Is it even possible or would it totally screw up windows, or worse OS X?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can rename it in Windows. Just double click on "c-drive" in Windows explorer and type the name.

    cool thanks. I will try that now. That will then make it appear in OS X?

    Sorry I have purposely forgot a lot of windows things.

    Yep, whatever name you give it in Windows will appear in OS X.
