What are you trying to rename it from? and what are you renaming to?

You can only rename the main name. You cannot rename the .ext bit.

the file may become unusable is a standard warning when changing file names just make sure when you change the name you leave the extension in tact

the extension is the . and the last 3 letters after the file name

eg .avi .bmp .jpg .exe etc
