Renaming a mapped drive

I am currently revising our logon script to include mapped drives to SharePoint 2010 document libraries & due to how the drives are named I wish to change them to something more obvious to the end user.

I have tried the following but it fails to work when I run the script:

mDrive = "drive letter"
Set oShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
oShell.NameSpace(mDrive).Self.Name = "AnyName"

If I check the registry key

HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerMountPoints2%key%

it is showing on one of the machines but others fail to display this key. If I add the key & the _LabelFromReg data it still does not change the name.

Does anyone have any ideas on a way that this can be achieved to rename the mapped drive?

Clive.
