K7 camera identity on Aperture


When I download from my K7 to Aperture the camera is identified as "NO NAME"

Does anybody know how to change this name? I am not clear whether this identitfier would be adjusted on the camera or in Aperture.

I changed the names of all my SD cards accordingly,
"Pentax K-x" to go with K-x
"Pentax Q" to go with Q
"Pentax K-7" to go with K-7 etc etc
plus I changed the file names in Menu for K-7 to:
PK7_0001 and on K-5 to:
PK5_0002 and so on.....
K-x,Q and K-30 you have no choice, no options in Menu, they are all:
IMGP0002 etc etc
