    I have windows XP pro. I added a slave harddrive. Everything works great. but when i boot up. the Add hardware wizard comes up and trys to install drivers for the harddrive and then i get this error:

    an error occurred during the installation of the device. one of the filter drivers installed for this device is invalid.

    Have any ideas on fixing this?:confused:
