Question flash drive

I have a Super Flash Drive USB 2.0 256MB drive and I'm just curious if its possible to change the name of the drive...so that like when I put into a system it will come up as --for instance-- GailRaye's Flash. Or like so that when viewing the drives in my comp it would show the name of the drive instead of "Drive E:/4568356.256MB" it would say --for instance-- "Drive E:/GailRayesFlash" ect ect....make sense? well I just wanna know if its possible and how to do it..... thanks in advance

Hello,

Plug the USB drive into your PC. Next, go to My Computer, the right click on the drive, click Properties and in the top text field, enter the preferred name.

No, if you do what Alvin.C mentioned the name of the flash drive should stay the same on any computer.
