Click on the name of the drive twice, but slower than a normal double click. It will then become writable, and you can change the name.

MightyGem I thank you for your quick response,,I have tried that to no avail,,it seems to only work in renaming OS icons and folders,,What I (we) are trying to accomplish is
I plugged customers USB external Hard drive In,,so that she can back her system up with time machine,,but I guess its the little things in life that upset her lol her external drive when on her desktop is named "untitled" she wants to rename Not remap this drive lets say to "my drive" this is where im confused,,do not know how how to do this

Click on the external hard drive, press enter and re-name it.

Good luck!
