    No, it is not just you. Most removable drives renaming does not work.
    I have never seen a need to.

    Well, I just tried on With a older 512 meg thumbdrive and it worksed. I even took it to my XP machine and the lable was still there.
    So I was wrong, they can, at least this older one can be. I have not tried any of my 16, 32 or 64 GIG ones.
