Not without loosing all the data that is on them.
That's actually not 100% true. I have done this myself, I believe with
btape. Doesn't btape have the option of changing a tape label?
I'm pretty sure it is impossible, because tapes don't support random writes

We also have a Quantum SuperLoader 3 (with DLT-S4; I've written about some
of my questions on this list) and I've also used these systems in the past.
Although it's new enough that I haven't really gotten into Bacula labeling,
I can tell you that the hardware/firmware apparently doesn't have an issue
recognizing more than 6 byte labels. I think I got 12 bytes on a label, but
I haven't figured out what our naming convention is going to be yet.
(We use the Brother P-Touch 9500PC, which I've used successfully in the
past) to create CODE39 labels. All indications at this point are that these
are processed properly by the reader in the SuperLoader; they are visible to
MTX and I presume to Bacula).
I'm happy to share templates for this or otherwise help if you want; contact

I have been using Bacula for about 6 months with two independent tape
drives. I came up with my own volume naming scheme. We have just purchased
a Quantum Superloader 3 and it comes with a set of barcode labels that do
not match my volume naming scheme. The Quantum labels are 3 alpha and 3
numeric characters (i.e. AFG670). My volume naming scheme is one alpha
and 5 numeric (i.e. A0001).
Is there a way to rename volumes in Bacula to match the new barcodes? If
there is not, does anyone on the list know if the Quantum Superloader 3 will
support custom barcode labels with my volume format?
