Question about LaCie d2 Extreme 250GB External with Triple Interface USB 2.0/Firewire 400/800 - 300790U ... Hard Drive
To Sandrew: Thanks for your reply and step-by-step instructions! I am not very "tech-y". My computer finds the drive when scanning for new hardware, but then I get a message "device cannot start code 10" and then the device has the yellow ! over it. I tried following the troubleshooter (uninstalling and reinstalling the device, updating the driver--there is none from Windows or LaCie that I can tell). The add hardware wizard also "can't find a better match than the software currently installed". I even tried reinstalling the driver, but it can't get past the same code 10 error. I've googled for fixes to the code 10 error, but don't find much to help resolve it. Interestingly, I tried to repeat all the same steps switching back to a FireWire connection, but then my computer doesn't detect anything on a scan for new hardware with this connection. Anything else I can try, or just return it? Thanks so much for you help!
Wow i think i solved it by just giving your mom the Alabama Hot Pocket while i licked your sister. that seemed to work pretty well.

Basically Solution #2 triggered the solution to my code 10. For easy reach I added an extension USB cord a while ago, attaching the external drive to it came up with code 10. Apparently, an extra length of cable leaves the drive with enough power to get running.
Without the extension cord all works fine again.

Well (the same guest as above), I forgot to say that sometimes the problem lies within correctly powering the drive. This drive comes with an USB to dc cable, to suply an extra current to the unit. Plug-it into a different USB hub, so the unit get current from two diferrent usb buses. That probably will wake up a 2.0 USB dribe on a 1.1 usb bus. ©bROTHER

Code 10 means wrong drivers. This drive does not work on USB 1.1 rev.

Yes usually a code 10 normally means the hardware is dead, i would send the unit back for exchange. Sorry can't help furthur. Please don't forget to rate the solutions so as we can tell if the info is useful or not.
