USB Memory stick registers as different drive on different computers.

I have a USB memory stick that registers as "Drive E:" on some computers that I put it in and "Drive F:" on others.  Is there a way to always get it to register as the same drive on different computers?

No, you can't get it to always use the same drive letter automatically on different PC's. The PC decides the drive letter it'll use, not the stick. One thing you can do on each PC is to use diskmanagement to manually assign the drive-letter you want, and the next time you insert that particular stick in that PC you'll get that letter.

unfortunately  this is an issue and totally depends upon the system hardware. their is no way we can fix the drive letter for USB on different computers.

If you control the computers that you're plugging your memory stick into, there is an excellent utility called USBDLM available here:

which you can install on each PC to allow you to achieve what you want, subject to the caveats that the site explains very clearly.

Otherwise, the previous contributors are quite correct...
