Lock-in drive designation?

PC / Windows 7: I have a Seagate external drive USBd to my PC; I want it to ALWAYS remain designated as drive I: however, if I use one of my other USB ports for something else, the Seagate drive designation slithers off to some other letter. Is there any way to lock the I: drive designation so it cant be poached?

Thanks! Appreciated.
