Summary0019601: Default device name can be confusing when drive letter changes
DescriptionWith plain memory stick (when MM cannot detect the volume label or the label/name is empty) then the name of the profile is just drive letter,
e.g. "H:\" , but if the user doesn't label such a device profile and the drive letter changes then it is confusing that device connected as drive 'I:\' is still called 'H:\'

Possible solutions:
1) Always show also the drive letter as an appendix like in MM4 media tree, i.e. H:\ (H:\) -- see screenshots below
2) When the default name is 'H:\' and drive letter has changed to 'I:\' then auto-rename the device to 'I:\'

Both MM4/MM5 shows device name as H: after connected a memory stick to H: , but once I renamed it to 'My device' then it no longer shows the drive letter -- the only place where the drive letter remains to be shown is in the MM4 media tree
