Disk Management : Drive Name

i have a Seagate external drive used as backup; assigned to Drive I:; when I would boot up, that drive was always correct; yesterday, I replaced my printer (USB connection); now, the Seagate shows is as Drive K: and when I go to Disk Management to Change, Drive I: does not show as an option; if I reboot and immediately go to Change Drive, I: will be there.

What's the problem; how can I assure that the Seagate is always identified as I: ??

Thank you, appreciated!

Thank you for the info; yes, the Epson printer has a slot, so that's probably what's muscling-in on the Windows processes.

I've decided the printer is going to be returned (for various reasons) and am getting something different; so, that means I'll be starting over on this drive-assignment business.

Appreciate your help!
