Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500 GB SATA Hard Drive
New drive fitted as indicated to existing MB sata connection and power plug, Easy Peasy. Shows up in Bios ok. Booting up shows as IDE 3. No show in Explorer. Device manager shows a problem, missing file - xfilt.sys.
Where do I find this file? I have used my motherboard driver disk (MB recent upgrade with 2 sata slots) Loading it a a storage rather than a boot drive. Also used my XP Pro disk but still gets the message. Tried to find driver through device manager control search, also windows drivers tucows etc. Help Please.

so try to install new full version windows xp than try ,i m sure about that your problem will fixed up.

Tips for a great answer:
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your "((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause this problem
computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly
a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working
also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets
hope this helps you
