Is it possible in Java to find the VolumeName of CD/DVD/Hard Disk?

I really want to know if this can be done purely in Java, I know I could write code to do this in C++ and use JNI, but that's not really what I'm after.

Note, I asked this question a long time ago for C# and got a perfect solution: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Dot_Net/Q_21409394.html

Problem is I had a hard disk crash and lost the program I wrote in C#.  Now I want to write it again but this time in Java.  I don't use .Net anymore, I don't even have .Net installed and don't really want to install it.

Can it be done?

Please see if the following suits your need:

import javax.swing.filechooser.*;
import java.io.*;

public class Test {
      public static void main(String[] args) {
            FileSystemView v = FileSystemView.getFileSystemView();
            for (File f : File.listRoots())
                  System.out.println(v.getSystemDisplayName(f));
      }
}
