    Can't Rename My Movie DVD's Name

    I burned a copy of my home movie on a DVD and I want to personalize the name of it.

    But all my DVDs show up in my optical drive as being labeled "YesVideo"

    I'd like to change the name from "YesVIdeo" to some other name like "Dan's Home Movie" -- but I can't.

    If I right click on my optical drive letter that shows my DVD, there is no option called "Rename"

    I am logged into Windows 10 under my user name which has Administrator privileges.

    I have Windows 10 Pro; Version 2004; OS Build 19041329; Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2202.130.0

    Whatever software you used to burn your DVD's, it gives you a choice to rename your movie file DVD Project to whatever you want before burning it to disc. DVD-R or DVD+R discs are Burn Once media and cannot be edited once you burn it, it is finalized when you start the burn process.
    A DVD+-RW blank disc can be edited, after burning (ie) you can add more files to it or it can be "erased" if it hasn't been Finalized. But to view it on a set top DVD player that plays thru your TV, you would have to Finalize it, and no more writing can occur on the RW disc.

    Once the disk reaches and completes the stage of being finalised, you can no longer write anything more to that disk!
