Question can i rewrite the manufacturer id?

can i overwrite the manufacturer id on a card?

olympus cameras have at least one feature that won't
work unless you're using an olympus card -- the id
must read:
	  product info: "OLYMPUS", "PAN ", "1.0"
whereas a generic card looks like:
	  product info: "       ", "    ", "0.0"

apparently it's physically possible to change the data,
because someone has written a utility to do it if you
have a diamond rio mp3 player (of all things!).  i don't
see any specific interfaces in the driver to allow this --
is it possible at all?
