I want my program to change the volumelabel of a drive.

I think SetVolumeLabel in windows.pas should do the job but
cant get it to work...

function SetVolumeLabel(lpRootPathName: PChar; lpVolumeName: PAnsiChar): BOOL; stdcall;

Please finish my procedure:

Procedure SetVolumeLabel(DriveChar, LabelName: String);
Begin
  SetVolumeLabel(DriveChar, LabelName);
end;

Try this one :
SetVolumeLabel(DriveChar[1], @LabelName[1]);
since a String is nothing more than an array of char...

or SetVolumeLabel(DriveChar[1], PChar(LabelName)); if you prefer

This procedure should
work if your are using long strings. {$h+}
Procedure SetVolumeLabel(DriveChar, LabelName: String);
Begin
  SetVolumeLabel(PChar(DriveChar), PChar(LabelName));
end;
SetVolumeLabel('c:\', 'NewName');
if you are using short strings:
Procedure SetVolumeLabel(DriveChar, LabelName: String);
Begin
  DriveChar := DriveChar + #0;
  LabelName := LabelName + #0;
  SetVolumeLabel(@DriveChar[1], @LabelName[1]);
end;
