Dear Sir/Madam, I have a Dell notebook with an Optiarc RW AD-5540A DVD player. Now I have "error code 10" = "the device cannot start". How can this be fixed? I am not computer literate, really. thanks....


An error code 10 error occurs when Device Manager can’t start a hardware device. This error is usually caused by corrupted or outdated drivers, so most often the solution is very easy.
  • The first solution to to restart your machine. Some error messages can be caused by a temporary problem.
  • Next, did you just install a new device or Windows update? If you did, this might have caused the problem. Either roll back the driver you installed, or use the System Restore to undo recent Device Manager changes.
  • The most common fix for a Code 10 error is to uninstall and reinstall your device drivers. If it is a USB device device is generating the Code 10 error, uninstall every device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers hardware category in Device Manager as part of the driver reinstall.
  • You might also try to update the drivers for your device, if a more current version is available.
  • You can run an update for the Windows Service Pack. There might be a patch available which will solve your error.
  • If none of the above solved your problem, you should take out your DVD drive and test it in another laptop, if possible, or connect it to a desktop computer using a converter.
  • If all of the above solutions don’t fix it, you might need to replace your DVD drive.
To update the DVD drivers, you have to search your computer manufacturer's website for the drivers. However, here's an easy way:
Use this driver scanning tool, which scans your computer for the needed drivers. It has an option to automatically retrieve them for you.

You can download this free tool from here, or directly from this link.

After you have downloaded the above file, double-click on it and follow the simple steps to install it. Then, when it asks if you want to run it, just answer yes. This is easier than manually searching, downloading and installing the drivers.
Hope that helps.
Regards,
Raspal

I can't use my dvd rw, when i go to perfical gestion i found this message : Optiarc DVD RW AD 5540A ATA Device (code 10), i know that the problem of driver but i don't know how i can to resolve this...


you can update drivers via windows updates. if you go through the control panel, select updates then choose custom, not the express as this won't allow you to choose the hardware updates, then look for the update for your drive. If there is no update for it or it has just been updated, you can go to my computer, right click on the drive and select properties,driver details and roll back the driver to a previous version.

DVD+/-RW/CD-RW NEC AD-7203S drivers No problem - just simple me need drivers for this device? for installation on other PC, new system not understend this device and ask driver


Windows 2000 & XP & Vista & 7 have "built-in" drivers for *ALL* CD/DVD drives. So, no specific "driver" should be necessary.

What errror-message(s) do you get?

Does Windows ask to connect to the Internet to search for drivers?
Did you permit it to connect?

Optiarc DVD+-RW AD-5540A decoder


If you are using windows with anything less than windows vista Home Premium or Windows Vista Ultimate, DVD capabilities are not built in. For example if you using windows XP or vista home basic DVD will not play. You need a decoder. You have a few options. 1. Buy a decoder pack. 2. Download a DVD player software like cyberlink trial version, install it and check how it is functioning for a few days. Buy and install a DVD player software. However, if you upgraded your compuer recently by adding a DVD drive, you may have recieved a Driver CD disk. Check that disk. check whether a trial version of any DVD player software is included. Most chances are there will be one. Once you got everything fine you can call the customer support for the DVD player software and if you are willing to pay, they will provided you with a key or serial number that will change the status of trial version to a fully working version.

My laptop does not "read" m Optiarc DVD RW AD-5540A ATA . Code 19 Drivers may be missing or corrupted. Please help.


Try going to the device manager and uninstalling the dvd drive, reboot the laptop and windows will recognize the device and reload the frivers for it. It may even ask to go to windows update and search for a fresh driver, allow that and let windows finsh the installation. Reboot and try the device for function.

Driver


Hello,

Is this a windows XP or Vista unit? You are getting that because either the driver is still not installed or you have installed an incompatible driver for your CDROM.

Windows Media Center cannot detect a video DVD in the DVD-ROM drive, even when I have inserted a DVD into the drive This is the driver installed in my computer: Optiarc DVD RW AD-5540A ATA Device


Unless you use a DVD player software like power dvd or others, you can not watch dvd on your media player. This is a copywrite and license related issue. DVD players are paid players and this is why, microsoft can not include it on windows.

If you are not willing to buy a player now, try vlc media player instad (click here to get ) . Its free ofcource.
