    Default LG Smart tv. Shows USB manufacturer not Volume Label

    Hello
    I have an LG Smart TV
    It has 3 usb ports which I use to hold usb sticks with various content on them.
    When I use the remote to select some files to play my LG tv shows the manufacturers name of the usb device.
    Eg Sandisk, Teac, AccData.
    But I would like to see the volume labels I have given them.
    Eg music, music videos, comedy videos etc.

    Any suggestions ?
    So what colour is your Adkaf?

    Thanks but that does not really help as I have 3 usb sticks in my tv at once and I want to go straight to the one I want.
    I cannot remember that moves are on Sandisk and that music is on Cruzer etc.
    I'd just like to be able to see the volume labels not the manufacturers name.

    Not a clue really, well a slight one. There is a .inf file that you can edit to change the icon and name of a flash drive in windows but no Idea if your TV would read that file or not. Instructions here http://www.techerator.com/2009/08/ho...b-flash-drive/

    Otherwise maybe invest in a single large flash drive and create 3 folders on it

    This guide is not for the specific issue you posted about:
    However, if you read through you will see that it does cover renaming various inputs
    which may do what you desire.
    But I have no LG tv to test it.
    I suggest trying it to see
