These are all good suggestions, but it's not just the D: drive / C: drive
that causing the problem.

My directory structures are different.

On one computer I started storing my sub-directories in "My Documents" and
on the other they were stored directly under the root directory.

I know I shouldn't have done this.  I know I shouldn't let Microsoft dictate
how I organise my work, but I had a moment of weakness...

Anyway, Nick's solution will probably work ok, I think.

Another possible solution: create a .bat file with something like this:

subst D: C:\Ddrive

Within the folder Ddrive, place your folders that you want to be treated as 
though they are on D:

The .bat file could be placed in your startup folder so it runs every time 
you boot the computer.

One advantage of this is that it would go beyond just Stata, i.e. material 
that is on both machines can be in the D: drive on both machines.
