My Internal drive letter changed?

I have a laptop with 2 HDDs. When installed it made the first C and the second D and my BD-Rom E which I was fine with. Today I found that my D drive has somehow reassigned itself to F. Can anyone tell me why this would happen and how I should fix it? I know I can simply change the letter back again will that stop it from happening again?

Ok great, I'll do it that way. Any idea why it randomly decided to change in the first place?

It has been known to happen to internal drives, as in this case.
