Trouble shooting steps I would probably take:

1) Power cycle the computer (unplugged), and try it again, when it is COMPLETELY booted.

2) unplug it and plug it into a different port(s).

4) Try it on a different computer (both PC and MAC, as it could be a formatting issue) (if it doesn't work, entertain the reality that I may have lost everything and may have to format the drive and/or buy a new one)

SOURCE: Detected With Error Code 10 in Device Manager in Windows XP

Have you tried also plugging in the DC usb cable into the traveldrive? I was having problems where my computer wasn't working properly with my drive unless I had it either plugged into a powered usb drive/hub or I had the DC plug in as well.

SOURCE: The drive is not recognized by Windows or Mac

You should give Test Disk a try. It's a little complicated at first but if you read the tutorial it's easy.

Here's a link to their wiki page.

SOURCE: Device Manager says ok but can not open

Open Windows Help and Support.
Search for "assign drive letter".
Make sure the drive is using a drive letter that is already in use on your computer.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: My Memorex USB flash drive is write protected

t seems that your flash drive has some bad sectors since normally that's the error message you get when that happens, try to format your drive under disk management.
Note: your files will be erased if you format your flash drive.
If formatting your flash drive does not solve your problem I will advise you to contact Memorex technical support for better assistance, you can contact them at 1-877-363-6673

USB drives can be write-protected by modifying the StoreageDevicePolicies Registry key and WriteProtect Registry value.
click Start>run>regedit to open Registry Editor. and press control+F to open the find dialogue box and type "usb device" or "driverdesc" to open usb mass storage device or type "usb mass storage device" in the search windows. And right click on it and delete. This will set the policy value to 0. then insert your usb device. It will work fine.

My flash drive will not operate when plug into my lap top.


Hello kjh87....
1) If you are using a USB cable with your device, check the cable to make sure it matches the speed of the device. Use USB 2.0 cables with USB 2.0 devices and USB 1.1 cables with USB 1.1 devices. Swap cables and check the device, if this does not work, proceed to Step 2.
2) Next, open Device Manager and look under the heading for USB Serial Bus Controllers. If there is a device with a yellow exclamation mark next to it such as USB Mass Storage Device. Double-click on the entry and check the Device Status. If the status shows something like
"This device cannot start. (Code 10)"
proceed to Step 3.
3) The easiest way to solve a USB error code 10 in Windows XP
is to follow the steps below to remove and reinstall all USB controllers.
A. Click on Start
B. Right Click on My Computer, click on Properties
C.Click on the Hardware tab
D. Click the Device Manager button.
E. Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers section.
F. Right-click every device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers node, and then click Uninstall to remove them one at a time.
G. Restart the computer, and allow the computer to reinstall the USB controllers.
H. Plug in the removable USB storage device, and then test to make sure that the issue is resolved.
