I have a HD name in the Project Library that is different than the name of the HD.
Is there a way to correct that?

    You can change the name of a drive, or change the name of a partition on the drive in Disk Utility. Without knowing more about your situation, I am not sure I would recommend this, because it might cause data loss, or it might cause your iMovie projects to lose their connection to your Events.

    The safest way would be to get a third drive. Name it and format it as you want. Then move the Events over to the new drive using iMovie. Also move any other contents to the new drive. Then reformat and rename the old drive.

    If you have enough free space on your other drives, you might be able to do this without buying another drive.
