I need support for reading and writing a label from/to a diskette (similar functionality is available from the Explorer/Properties). How can this be done programmatically ?

You can use the SetVolumenLabel() windows API.

Let me know if you have any questions.  

Oh, and that is supposed to be SetVolumeLabel().  No "n".
