Default Mass Storage Device drivers

Help me please! I have 3 hard drives connected to my computer. One is connected via a device controller. I recently re-installed XP & now my computer doesn't find the third hard-drive. I need to re-instal drivers for it, but I have no idea what drivers it needs & how to find them! All that comes up for a description is 'Mass Storage Controller'. I don't know If I can be helped, but any attempt would be very appreciated. Thanks!

Sounds like you have a SATA drive inwhich the SATA/RAID controller must be enabled in the BIOS and the SATA drivers must be installed via floppy by hitting F6 at the beginning of the WinXP setup.

If that's not the case then we kind of need more information such as your HD type and what kind of controller you're talking about.

Default mass storage

It's not the hard drive I need the drivers for, it's the device the hard-drive is connected to. Here's some of the markings on it...

It seems to be a SIIG product, that's the sticker on it.

CE is stamped on it

the most prominant code is E189350

Is there a program I could download that might tell me what drivers I need?

Thanks! ~SD~

I have Silicon Image card with SIIG sticker so you might try
and check if you find a suitable driver there.
However, there wasn't anything like the code you provided.

Windows found my own card without having to install any drivers.
