Optiarc DVD RW AD-7561A This device cannot start. (Code 10)

Optiarc DVD RW AD-7561A ATA Device.
In Device Properties under Device Status it reads:
This device cannot start. (Code 10) I have an Optiarc DVD/RW AD 7203A ATA Device, which reads "Device Cannot Start". I tried restoring twice but after two days, it reads the same error message. I have Vista OS. Tried going to the site to download driver but it is not available. Tried e-mailing for help but solutions are not helping.

Optiarc dvd rw ad-7561a ata device unplugged


Check BIOS for Optical drive. Press F key noted on boot screen to enter. If it's not noted there, you need to check physical connections. Might just need to be re-seated with power disconnected. Re-check BIOS and make sure to save before exiting.

If it is noted in BIOS and Windows still fails to see the drive. Run a thorough virus scan, then boot into Safe Mode by pressing F8 during startup. Go to Device Manager, and select Show Hidden devices under the View tab. Delete all drives and reboot. Windows should say new hardware found and install.

This should take care of the problem if there is nothing wrong with the drive. Replace or seek professional support is not, and good luck

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.

Windows vista updated and now my optiarc dvd rw drive won't work


You will have to uninstall the drive and reinstall again. I think the drivers for the drive is not properly installed. But if all this does not work, then I think you will have to do a system restore.

Optiarc dvd rw ad-7561a ata driver


weird. Try using Windows System Restore to revert back to before installing dameon tools. You can try installing it again but I would re-download just to be safe. It it happens again you might want to try alcohol 120% instead.

Optiarc DVD RW AD-7561A This device cannot start. (Code 10)


I beleive that this code is being displayed under the Device Status in the Properties window of the DVD Drive in Device Manager.
If it is so, you need to do some modifications with the Registry to resolve the issue and I am sure that the issue will be resolved with this.
However, since you had not specified the Operating System which is installed in the Notebook is Vista or XP.
However, I am providing the links which includes the steps for both Vista and XP to edit the registry to resolve the issue with Error Code 10 with the DVD Drive in your Notebook.

You need to perform the steps listed under Advanced Troubleshooting to delete the Upper and Lower filters.

Removing Upper and Lower Filter in Vista :
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461/en-us
You need to perform the steps listed under Resolution in the link above.
You may not find both the Upper and Lower filters according to the instructions links provided above.
Delete the ones among the Upper filter or Lower filter or both which you find in the locations mentioned.
This should solve the issue...
