You know when you plug in an external hard drive to another computer (other than the one you ussually use) it might read the driver letter as a different letter than what your use to (C:, E:, F:, ect)? Well, is there a way you can make your external hard drive always read as the same letter?... No matter what computer it's connected to. Maybe some off letter like J: or Z:.

Yes, but you've got to go to each computer and set each one individually.
I suspect that someone familiar with scripting could write a script that would autorun and set this on systems - but what would it do when you hit a system that already had this setting on it? There's generally only 20 or so choices available - so eventually you'd stumble upon someone who used the same drive letter for another purpose.
