Question about Fujitsu AMILO PC Laptops

1 Answer

Error code 10

Hi people, i have this amilo notebook and the problem is that the cd drive doesnt recognise any discs. the unit attempts to spin when a disc is inserted..but thats it!
all my windows updates...are up to date. I have looked in the device manager and it reports an ERROR CODE 10 under the cd drive. the driver reports no problem with this device, and i made sure i have the lastest driver for this unit. im running windows vista.

I have a sneaky suspicion the unit istself is damged?

Any futher checks i could make to prove this??

all suggestions gratefully received!

CD drive does not work

try uninstalling it, then reboot to let windows automatically install and reconfigure the device. Usually the windows native drivers are all that's needed.

Stiffy drive don't respond and DVD Rom spin but don't read CD.

Try different discs to determine whether it's the disc or the drive. If it's the drive the the lens on drive might be dirty, try cleaning it with proper "Cleaning CD" if that doesn't help the drive it self might be going out (as in the mechanical parts on the drive). In the later case the only solution is buy a new drive.

Hi, first that everything is necessary to know with that operating system these working, if you work with windows XP you must update the version of the BIOS that corresponds according to the model of your machine, if this does not correct the mistake at the time must replace the unit of CD.

Hi, according to what I understand the unit works for some situations especially but you cannot visualize the content, in this case the problem that you one presents shows off to be Cd-DVD's unit that this trumping, if the equipment this one even in guarantee, you must come to an CAS or Center of Authorized Service, in order that they diagnose and replace the unit

Cd-dvd rom error code 10. failed to start


I had similar problems with my HP computer and i found either uninstall it through device manager the reinstalling it through new hardware wizaed in control panel. Or if that doesnt work try opening your laptop up and unplugging/removing the drive itself and restarting the laptop then turn it off again and put the drive back in the computer should then register it as a new device and reinstall it. that second option worked for my drive so it should hopefully work for yours
