Windows Logo Test

I recently purchased a Buffalo Ministation 500GB external drive, however when I plug it in to my XP laptop I get the message it has failed the Windows Logo Test and to use it may damage my system. As it has received positive user reviews presumably it is safe to proceed? Thanks.

its just because the drivers have not been verified by Msoftjust

click on Continue Anyway to finish the install just like you normally would. You won’t encounter any abnormal problems.
