Code 10 errors.....

by Peconet Tietokoneet In reply to Pendrive Related

For Windows 7 and Vista.

Code 10

If the device has a FailReasonString value in its hardware key, that string is displayed as the error message. The driver or enumerator puts this registry string value there. If there is no FailReasonString in the hardware key, you receive the following error message:
This device cannot start. (Code 10)
Recommended resolutions

Here are some things that you can try to resolve this problem.

Update the driver

In the device Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Update Driver to start the Hardware Update Wizard. Follow the instructions to update the driver.

You may be prompted to provide the path of the driver. Windows may have the driver built-in, or may still have the driver files installed from the last time that you set up the device. If you are asked for the driver and you do not have it, you can try to download the latest driver from the hardware vendor?s Web site.

First thing is to try a different USB Socket

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to Pendrive Related

If the problem persists try it in another computer.

If it works now go into the Device Manager and delete the USB Ports and reboot the XP Computer. Allow XP to install the USB Drivers and then retry the Thumb Drive.

If it still doesn't work when plugged into a different computer the Drive has suffered some sort of Damage and is no longer functional. You need to replace the Thumb Drive.

I have to agree with smeg. The code 10 error is pretty generic for hardware failure. Try this:

1: Try the device in another computer, if it doesn't wort its probably dead.
2: If it does work in another pc than try it in a different USB port on your pc
3: go the the manufacturers website and get teh most recent drivers for the drive and try to use them.
4: If that doesn't work than go into the device manager and uninstall the USB root hubs and restart the computer, let it reinstall your USB hubs than try again.
5: If that doesn't work there is something more serious going on in which case we will need to figure out what that is.
