The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk2\D

I was using my iPod with Windows XP desktop since years and never faced any kind problem so far until yesterday. Now last week I added one more additional Sata Hard drive to this system and since then whenever I connect the iPod I use to get the following error message:

"The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk2\D" Let me tell you that I never had this error ever before adding this second sata drive. Both hard drives have only one partition on them and the second one is just used for backing up files. As per troubleshooting I tried changing the Sata ports but yet no help.

Do you guys have any idea what could be the problem and how can I get rid of this problem? Thanks for your helps.

I think the problem is with drive letters. You should try changing the letter for your second Sata drive by going to Disk Management. Go to start/run, and type:

diskmgmt.msc

Right click the new SATA drive letter, and change it to another unused letter. Hopefully it should work fine now.
