    Confusion over disk names and mounting issue

    I installed my WD External USB hard drive a while ago. It was showing up in fdisk as /dev/sdf1.

    So I set a mount point using /etc/fstab.

    Now I reboot my system and it tells me that the disk is not recognised, but there's now a disk called /dev/sdb1

    Why has this happened? I guess I should update my fstab file now, but will it set itself back again?

    thanks
