Changing the Name

Hallo

I have an Arduino Uno and when I plug the little guy in, I get a notification telling me I've got an "Arduino Uno" plugged in. (I'm using windows 7)

Now when I go to control panel -> Device and Printers and I look up my arduino there, I want it to say something else. I want to know how to change that name. Lets say I want to change it from "Arduino Uno" to "Death Star One"..

Any one have any Ideas on this?

Thanks guys.

never done this, but I would try the following steps: - remove the current driver. - download the driver without installing - patch the driver somewhere ( possibly .inf file) - install it manually.

no guarantees ;) let us know if it works

did some reinstalling and it works!

goto - C:\Program Files (x86)\arduino-1.0.4\drivers - edit - arduino.inf change the line : uno.name="Arduino Xno" or unoR3.name="Arduino Yno"

reinstalled the driver manually and my UNO appears as "Arduino Xno (Com31)" in the device manager

Beautiful. Magnificent. Amazing.

Thank you robtillaart so much!..
really appreciate this!!
