Try setting up your window as you want it, then press COMMAND-J to open the configuration dialog. Make any changes you wish in the dialog, then check the checkboxes at the top at the top, if needed, and click on the Make Default button on the bottom.
If this doesn't work it's because Finder is not storing the information on the external drive, so you will have to change everytime the external drive is removed and reconnected.

Thx for the fast reply!
Your advice worked on one of my external drives but not the other. It worked on the drive I took out from my MBP when I installed an SSD. Installed it in a $20 USB encloser from OWC. The drive it didn't work on is a Western Digital MyBook firewire external drive. Strange.
