The NAS device that the driver were connected had failed.

Please Help.

Sorry if I ask, but must be sure to understand correctly:
a. You removed some disks from a NAS? Please post make and model.
b. You putted these disks on a PC?

NAS uses hardware RAID or software RAID. If it is software, most likely it isn't MS's software RAID. I'm afraid your only chance is to get another identical NAS and use the disks shown in the Screen Shot you posted.

I don't think it will allow you to recognize these disks with Windows XP

At least you give a try with Win2008 R2 \ 2012 machine or Win 7 \ Win 8 and it might help

chances are very rare, probably you may find some data recovery solution might help you

Mahesh may be right about XP being the problem, if the NAS was based on Windows Storage Server 2003 then a Windows XP box ought to pick the disks up OK but XP isn't licensed for mirrored disks.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc738132%28v=ws.10%29.aspx states "You can create mirrored volumes only on computers running Windows 2000 Server, Windows 2000 Advanced Server, Windows 2000 Datacenter Server, or Windows Server 2003 operating systems." (obviously that doesn't mean you can't mirror disks in NT4 or Windows 2008, it's there to show XP is excluded). It may also mean you can't mount mirrored disks on XP. I know there's an illegal hack that allows mirroring under XP but it's not relevant to this thread.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
