Hi,
is this an external USB CD Drive ?
Windows error code 10 indicates a hardware error or failed driver installation. This error may appear if a device has insufficient power to operate correctly (if it,s plugged into a bus powered hub with other devices), or may indicate a more serious hardware problem. Also, it may be indicative of USB root hub drivers being incorrectly installed.
This could be a faulty or dirty USB Lead problem.
Hope this helps.
Mike @ Compurepair.

Code 10


If you run into the error "This device cannot start. Code 10? (often followed by a driver identifier, for example "This device cannot start. Code 10 in audio driver"), here is what it means.

The Windows error "This device cannot start. Code 10? or "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" is a hardware error that most commonly means that you have a bad, missing, or incompatible device driver. So, for example, "This device cannot start. Code 10 in audio driver" means that you have a bad or missing or incompatible driver for your sound card.

The technical explanation for this message, according to Microsoft, is this:

"If the device has a FailReasonString value in its hardware key, that string appears as the error message. The driver or enumerator puts this registry string value there. If there is no FailReasonString in the hardware key, you receive the following error message:

This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

What does that mean in plain English? It means that if the device which is throwing the error has added its own custom error text to your Windows system when the device was installed, then when the device encounters an error, you will see the custom error message specific to that device. But if it doesn't have its own custom error message, then Windows uses its own generic error message for devices, which is "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

Microsoft recommends that when this happens, you click "Update Driver" to update the drivers for the device. You can also start the Windows troubleshooting wizard by going to the general properties tab of the device, and clicking on "Troubleshoot".

Before doing this, be sure that you have the correct and most up-to-date versions of the driver(s) for that device. You can also try uninstalling and reinstalling the device, using the disk which came with it.

Finally, you can go to the website of the device's manufacturer, and check their downloads or support section for current, up-to-date drivers.

My audio driver is not working (error 10)


The Windows error "This device cannot start. Code 10? or "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" is a hardware error that most commonly means that you have a bad, missing, or incompatible device driver. So, for example, "This device cannot start. Code 10 in audio driver" means that you have a bad or missing or incompatible driver for your sound card.

I suggest trying an update, or if you just updated it roll back the driver.

That means that the video card in your computer does not have hardware acceleration, does not have it turned on, or lacks the proper video drivers to use the hardware acceleration.
Upgrading the video drivers is one thing to try.
Upgrading your DirectX version is a second.

Code 10 on HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T20L ATA Device


Code 10 is a general device failure.

This either means the driver is corrupted or your device has failed.

If you have seen the Code 10 Error you're already in device manager, right click on the device and uninstall it. Once this is done, restart the computer and allow it to reinstall. If it works you're done.

If it doesn't go to www.microsoft.com/kb/341060 then scroll down and click on the "Fix It" button. Restart when instructed.

Lastly if that doesn't work the drive is likely dead, replace it with a new drive they only cost $35-$50 these days.

Hope this helps FixYa,

I have a Canon CD-4050 and have a code 10. Can you tell me how to fix it?


Hi Millerc,
Don't worry, there's no fee for this solution, you only pay for Premium Solutions, and your problem was posted as a normal, 'free' one.
Your problem has few answers online but I'll advise you as best as I can.
Code 10 probably indicates a hardware error, or 'Device not present', so turn it off and on again, check the cable to the PC, ensure the Scanner driver in your Device Manager (in Control Panel > System) is working properly, and if you have ever burned a disk from it, did you use Roxio Direct CD software? Roxio drivers are notorious for causing device conflicts.
I found a picture of the scanner that says it has been replaced by another model:

780c3ba.png

So I don't think there is support for it anymore, and the closest user manual I could find to your model was for the CD-4046 and was only available for $8.50!
So, I can only suggest resetting it, running any onboard diagnostic tests etc.
If you can manage to do a manual scan, that will isolate the problem to the sending of the image to the computer.. meaning that the code 10 error could refer to something on there, which would at least be more easily rectified.

If the Error 10 window provides anymore information whatsoever, please post a description here,and I'll look over it and try to give you a second opinion. Let me know how you get on anyway..

Good Luck :)

How to Fix a Code 10 Error
A Code 10 error is due to:
  • Missing device driver
  • Malfunctioning device driver
  • Incomplete device driver files
If the device due to which the error has occurred contains the value FailReasonString in its hardware key.

then this string is displayed as an error message. Otherwise, the device displays the following error message:
This device is either not present, not working properly, or does not have all the drivers installed. (Code 10)

Most of the time, you can resolve this error by updating the device driver for the faulty device. To update the driver, select the System option from the Control Panel. In the System Properties dialog box, select the Hardware tab, and then select the Device Manager button. Scroll through the Device Manager window and identify the faulty hardware device. Right-click on this device and then select the Update Driver command. Next, follow the screen instructions to update the driver of the selected device.
