Renumbering External HDDs

  Severn Bore 19:33 14 Jun 2008

I recently disconnected two of my external hard drives and on reconnecting them find that they have been allocated different drive numbers from their originals. This has meant that my photo organising program ( Adobe Lightroom) can no longer find my photos without my going through the laborious process of reconnecting them with the program.
I assume it must be possible to restore the original drive numbers to the HDDs, but have been unable to find out how. Can anyone please help?

Assume you mean drive letters?
