wierd characters in external disk name after Gnome automount

I get these weird characters in the external disk name after Gnome automounts the disk asif some font files are missing. Earlier when I had two partitions it used to be fine. So I don't think it is because of missing fonts. In the /media directory I see underscores in the diskname (i.e., U_e_____). I dont have any problem accessing it but I would like to fix this.

Does anyone know how to fix this annoying behavior?
