How to change the volume label (disk name)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 1, 2009
Having created a partition and formatted it, how do I give that partition a name?
That's the name that shows up on Windows as the disk name, and on Ubuntu as the mount name (e.g. /media/MyNiceDisk).
On Windows Vista, I'd right-click the drive, select Properties, and fill in the first box under "General".
I've searched and searched for how to do this on Linux, and haven't managed to find the answer yet.

How can I change the volume label on DVD ISO's?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 17, 2010
I make duplicates of all my DVD's and keep the originals stored in boxes in my basement. I have a program I wrote that copies and ISO of the DVD, extracts it, adds some special metadata I use for my computer/media center to recognize exactly what movie it is and then puts it back into an ISO.
I have the slight problem that I want to change the disk label on some of the disks so that they make sense and fit some sort of standard. i.e. change "INNOCENT_BLOOD_4X3_FF_BUDGET" into "Innocent Blood "
Does anyone know a tool in that will allow me to do this? Preferably something that has a command line interface if possible.
How to change the label of a disk
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 17, 2004
I want to replace a disk in a Red Hat 9 server I use as Samba Domain Server. I have 2 SCSI disks and 2 IDE. During the initial setup I have made the following partitions:
IDE Device A:
Partition #1 > /boot
Partition #2 > /
Partition #3 > swap
IDE Device B:
Partition #1 > /public
SCSI Device A:
Partition #1 > /setup
IDE Device A:
Partition #1 > /ntprofiles
Now, I want to replace the IDE Device B: with a new SCSI disk. I can transfer all the data of the existing disk somewhere else. So I need a way to un-install the IDE disk (probably from fstab), then install the SCSI disk and name it (or better mount it) as /public.
My current fstab config is:
[SOLVED] How to change "volume label" of the USB drives?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 26, 2007
How to change "volume label" on the drives connected through USB? - USB memory stick, external hard drive (ext3), ...
Volume without label is recognized as generic name by udev. This is confusing every once in a while. So I want specific name to each USB stick, external drive...
I know how to set it, using mkfs. (for ext3 mkfs.ext3 -L labelName, for vfat mkfs.vfat -n volumeName) But doing so, drive is initialized.
I tried "mlabel" but does not work well.
For some reason, web search gives me only mlabel.
Is there any way to keep content and change "volume label" ?
I appreciate any suggestion.
How to get volume label based on device name using Python
location: linuxexchange.com - date: March 28, 2011
I am making something like a list of mounted devices for Linux.
On program startup I parse /etc/mtab for existing mounts. To get notified about new mounts added to the system am using DBus and in message I get there is volume.label property. Is there any way to get volume label based on device name like /dev/sda1 or /dev/sdd?
After some time I managed to find a solution to this problem. Python gio module has a class named VolumeMonitor. So getting the list with nice names and correct icons is simple as iterating through result of get_mounts() method:
for mount in volume_monitor.get_mounts():
print mount.get_name(), mount.get_icon()
You can also get a list of drives and volumes. You can also connect some signals and update list appropriately. One note though. Volume is the first one to appear in the list and first to trigger its own events, mounts come later. So if you wish to maintain a list of active mounts, listen to mount-added and mount-removed signals instead of vo

A way to change a fixed disk partition label.

Hi: I have some partitions on the disk which have no label in it. The cfdisk linux program run with no options initially displays several columns. For one of them the header says 'label'. This is the meaning I'm giving to the word 'label' here.
What would be a way to change the label for a partition?

How do I change the "Computer Name?"
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 23, 2011
I've setup an older laptop with Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and Lubuntu. Everthing runs well, but I made a typo when adding the Computer name during the install process.
What file would I edit to change the Computer Name? . . . or maybe there's a gui application to accomplish the same?
Appreciate any info . . . thanks.
