How about:

   _Description: Detect manufacturer-supplied driver injection disks

?  "device" doesn't provide any new information here; I think
"manufacturer-supplied" is more accurate than the other suggestions.  (And I
think the distinction between "disk" and "media" is immaterial; we use
"disk" to refer to lots of things that aren't physically disk-shaped.)
