But naming or renaming your connected optical (CD/DVD) drives is not as easy as renaming a disk drive, especially for a novice user. One can’t right-click on a CD/DVD drive in Windows Explorer and then rename it. Right-clicking on a CD/DVD drive doesn’t show Rename option. To name the CD/DVD drive, you need play with Windows registry. As all Windows users are not comfortable with editing the registry, here is a smart utility that allows you name your CD/DVD drive in a jiffy.


Drive Namer is small portable utility for Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, and Vista to rename your optical drive in a simple way.
