Windows Mobile 2003 Tweaks - Changing the Storage Card name

By default, the system assign a name for mounted volumes, "Storage Card" on an English system (this name change with localisation). You cannot rename this folder, as it is an IFS (Installable Filesystem) and not a simple folder. However, you can tell the system to use another name when mounting a volume.

To do this, follow the next steps:

  1. Open the PHM Registry Editor. Click here for more details.
  3. Create a string value named "Folder" and type the name you want for storage cards as the data. This name will now be used for the first ATA Card you you insert, and the same name followed by a number if you insert more than one.
  4. You can also use this for other storage drivers, for exemple to use "SCSI Disk" for drives used with Adaptec APA-1460, include a string "Folder" = "SCSI Disk" in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\PCMCIA\ADPDisk.
