On my OSX desktop it shows the windows volume but just calls it "untitled" I've tried clicking on it to change it but it won't let me and I can't do it in the more info section either. Is there any other way to change the name of it? I would just like to rename it "WindowsXP"
QUOTE Thanks

Boot into Windows and rename your C: drive.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

Sounds like you formatted the drive in NTFS. OS X cannot write to an NTFS volume. Next time format the volume FAT32 and you will be able to do this in OS X.
