Then your question is directed at the wrong project. If you are using udev, the rule that is generating dynamic mount names will be probably be something like /etc/udev/rules.d/75-cd-aliases-generator.rules. You should read "man udev", google around for clues, or ask your question on a udev channel, eg. "How can I have udev create a mount point with the same name whenever I put in a disc?"
