Default External Hardrive Problem

I've had my hardrive for a year or so and never had a problem with it until now, when I turned it on tonigh and opened itunes to play my music it couldn't find any of the songs which was strange, so I opened my-computer and I noticed the harddrive has changed from drive F: to drive H: how is this possible and how can I change it back, loading 10000 odd songs back onto itunes is a pain in the ****!!!

Cheers for any response!

click on control panel, administrative options, computer management, then disk management, then right click on the hard drive, and change the letter. You may have to restart, and if there is another drive that already has the drive letter you want, you need to change that first.
