SCSI HDD Install issue -Win XP-Pro



Am having problems installing additional SCSI HDD's.
System spec's are as follows:

Windows XP Pro SP1 build 2600 OEM (registered)
All available updates from Windows Update website
installed as of 3/9/2003

Pentium 4 2.0GHz
SOYO P4S Dragon Ultra
GeForce 4 MX 440 64MB DDR
512 MB 2700
S.B. Live

Adaptec 19160 SCSI Host Adapter
Seagate ST318436LW 18GB Ultra 160 (ID 0)
Western Digital WDE 18300 Ultra 2 (ID 5)

Mylex Flashpoint LW Model : BT-950 PCI SCSI Host Adapter (Ultrawide)
Plextor Ultraplex Wide CD-ROM
Plextor Plexwriter 12x10x32S

USB 2.0 expansion card with VIA chipset
Ricoh RW5125 DVD+RW drive in external USB 2.0 drive case

Ok, after trying to install additional Ultra 160 hard drives, I get the following error message which concludes the hardware wizard:

“Cannot Install this Hardware
There was a problem installing this hardware:
IBM DPSS-309170N SCSI Disk Device

An error occurred during the installation of the device
The specified service does not exist as an installed service.”

I have tried to install 2 different Hitachi 160 drives and received the same message. All additional drives were set to ID 1 (only 1 at a time).
Interestingly enough, although the drives appear in Device Manager with a yellow exclamation point, I can actually read and write to them. However, every time I re-boot causes the Hardware Detection Wizard to run again with the same error message.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.



As I said, ID's are all different. I wouldn't be able to access the drives otherwise.

All drives are detected ok by the 19160 card.
