How to: Determine a Drive's Volume Label in Visual Basic 

The My.Computer.FileSystem.GetDriveInfo Method provides a DriveInfo object that can be queried for information about a drive on a computer. You can use the VolumeLabel property to determine the drive label. Attempting to access the property without sufficient permission throws a SecurityException exception.
