Default Hardware Wizard won't go away


I bought a SATA/USB 2.0 external hdd. Every since, whenever I turn on my computer, I receive the Add Hardware Wizard for a SATA RAID array. When I click on "No" (I don't want to add new hardware), the next window asks me how I want to install it. I click Cancel.

But the next time I reboot, I have to do it again.

Is there a way to stop the Hardware Wizard windows from opening for this and any other SATA/USB 2.0 drives?

Did this device come with drivers?
