Cannot import foreign disks!

I use hard disks to back things up, and plug them in alternately (after shutting off the PC).

For the first time, I have been unable to "import foreign disks" when I plug them in - I get this weird error message:

INTERNAL Error - A disk group with the specified name already exists (C100007A).
For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

Of course, the link provides no help whatsoever.

What is this C100007A, and why has it screwed up? I have no way of accessing the data on these disks! (Short of a fresh XP install somewhere)

In fact why should I have to reimport the same disks over and over every time I plug them in?

To work around this issue, we need to modify registry.
If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause
serious problems that may require you to reinstall your
operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can
solve problems that result from using Registry Editor
incorrectly.

If your system/boot drive is still a basic disk, follow
these steps to correct this
condition:

1. Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).

2. Click the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic
es\dmio\Boot Info

3. Under the Boot Info key, delete the "Primary Disk
Group" key.

4. Quit Registry Editor, and then reboot the computer.

5. After the reboot, try to import the foreign disks
again.

Please try the suggestion above and let me know the
results.
