All my sticks are labeled, and I labeled none of them.

They all just came factory formatted as fat and factory labeled with
the producer's name. This is my EMTEC stick (at /media/EMTEC) , this
my BASF stick (at /media/BASF)... useful enough, since I do not use to
plug several sticks at the same time, and even less several of the
same brand.
