Mlabel is a program to rename a flash disk or removable disk into readable one. Like “My Flash”.
We do that easily in windows but I have not ye find it in linux.
Here are two ways I discovered in google using mlabel in linux terminal. (do all in root – use sudo in ubuntu or debian).
Once the flash disk in the usb port, it will automatically mount to something like /media/usb or /media/theoldname, umount it
Check the flash /dev name :
Usually the result is /dev/sdb1 or /dev/sdc1, then rename it.
#mlabel -i /dev/sdb1 ::thenewname
edit and find out /etc/mtools.conf to the label z: /dev/sdb1 (this refer to the plug in flash) then
For displaying the current label $mlabel -s c:
To change the label $mlabel c:”newlabel”
