Thread: How do you rename DVD burners?
11-21-2010, 12:39 PM #1How do you rename DVD burners?
I have two burners installed on and recognized by my iMac. They are both 22x LaCie d2 DVDRW DL LightScribe USB2&FW's.
They are attached via Firewire. The problem is that some software gets confused by both drives having the same name "TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-S223L" or programs like Toast Titanimin Pro 10 sees/lists both drives but I can't tell which one is which except to guess. Is there some way to rename one or both drives with its own unique name to show which drive is which. I love these drives which is why I bought a second one. But this problem is vexing I usually want to read from one drive and burn to the other in an uninterrupted operation without using my iMac internal burner.
Any help would be welcome. Thanks.
P. S. LaCie is working the issue seem to be having a problem understanding what I want to do.

Welcome to the forums.
Why not use your iMac DVD as a reader and only keep 1 Lacie burner connected ?
Why make your life complicated ?

Thanks for the help folk. I'll guess I'll have to read with my internal burner and burn with one LaCie switched on. I just thought some Mac Wizard or Lacie Support might have a work around. But no such luck.
