Better rethink your cheeting. The kernel doesn't guarantee that /dev/sdd 
is always this particular disk, even if you don't change the hardware. 
You can avoid future trouble if you change the entry to use the UUID. It 
isn't too difficult to find out the UUID - use the command

ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid/

and select the link that points to /dev/sdd1 now.
