LUN0 and LUN1 String Format

Last Updated: April 04, 2011
Question: 

How to display the device name in Device Manager and the Properties windows?

Answer: 

The info in the LUNx strings is used to display the device name in Device Manager and the Properties windows.  The format for the string is xxxxxxxxyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, where x is the manufacturer, and y is the device.  Windows will automatically place a space between the x and y boundary.  If the x spaces are not all used, then they should be left blank and Windows will truncate them. 

For example, a LUNx string of "12345678ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOP" would show up in Device Manager as "12345678 ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOP". 

Likewise, a string of "1234    ABCDE" (note spaces to fill remaining x slots) would show up as "1234 ABCDE". 

Note that "1234 ABCDE" would appear as "1234 ABC DE" in Device Manager.
