You might want to post the results of ...

  cat /proc/partitions

... to the list.  That would make it easier to help you.

A handy way to differentiate drives that are dynamically assigned is
to use the symlinks that modern versions of udev create in
/dev/disk/by-uuid.  Can you post the results of...

  ls -lrt /dev/disk/by-uuid/

...to the list?

Read the udev howto.
