    Drivers Letters are changed!

    After installing W8 on my second harddrive, I am surprised to see that the drivers letters are changed.
    On W7 it apears like always that way:
    driver 0: (C) Windows7
    driver 1: (D) Windows7
    on E is ubuntu
    (F) Windows 8
    On W8: (c) is for W8 instead of win7 and (D) is the actually (C)....
    Why is it? Can I simply change the letters and the problem is solved? or what is hidding behind this mistake?
