Same answer (Feb 28) as the last time (Feb 26) you asked the exact
same question:

You don't. You assign it to the device that's plugged into the port.

If you have more than one available port, make sure the device gets
plugged into the same port every time.

Re: Assigning a Drive letter for USB Port

In order to assign the device a letter, first plug it in then right
click "My Computer", goto "Manage"... then goto "Disk Management" on the
left.... select the drive you want on the right... and change the letter
to whatever you want (that's available of course).

...but as has been stated... you're NOT changing the USB port letter...
your changing the USB HDD drive letter. If you plug another USB HDD
into the same port... it will get a different letter again.

I haven't played with changing USB HDD drive letters around and trying
different ports to see how much Vista can "remember".

A 3rd party software is required to achive this.
My "USB Drive Letter Manager" can do this.

You can easily define default drive letters for all
USB drive.
Drive letters depending on the USB port is possible
too but requires some more effort.
Take some minutes for reading the help file.
