On Debian, you change a volume label like this.

ms-dos/NTFS etc:

mlabel -i /dev/yourpartition ::new-label

The rest

e2label /dev/sdb1 "mydiskname"


if you want to change the labels on your NTFS disks or what not, make sure you have ntfsprogs installed. then issue:

sudo ntfslabel -f /dev/<drive> <newlabel>

example:

sudo ntfslabel -f /dev/sdc1 external_information

that worked for me and i just found that. try that.
