Setting up 2 SATA drives

I have installed a Western Digital 74GB Raptor as my main disk drive.  It is SATA and is set as the master drive.  I am trying now to install a second SATA drive to be used strictly for storage.  I set it as the master on that channel.  When I turn on the computer, it works fine, however an error message comes up that says: "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver."

I did not have to install drivers for the first drive and I cannot find any drivers anywhere to install on this second drive.  I think that I may have set the jumper wrong on the second drive.  Does anyone know how to set these drives up properly?

If they are on the same channel, one needs to be a slave.

SATA drive's don't have master slave jumpers.
You can only run one drive per sata channel so I am confused here.

What mother board are you using? Or is this on a pci SATA controller?

I am using the Asus P4C800E.  Are you saying that I don't need to use jumpers at all?

SATA drives do not have jumpers for master/slave.

If you changed the defalt maby it is trying to install a driver for power management don't know for sure.
Adding a drive should not require a driver. Unless you have configured it for use with raid and have not installed the raid driver if your MB supports this.
