The power supply, although showing 11.7 Volts, was dead or at least very ill. I used a different 12V 2A supply and was well.

I had a similar problem with my pc( OS=XP SP2) with the same external drive model. I was able to solve it by downloading and installing WindowsXP-KB908673-x86-ENU Hotfix Package from Microsoft Corporation. I hope it works for you.

Sounds like a disk error and it cant read the start of the drive. If it still detects it you might be able to repair it with a partition recovery or partition repair tool available online.

I plugged in my external hard drive and received the error this device cannot start code 10 even though the device "lit up"


click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question mark?

right click to reinstall drivers

if you can see your usb drive but its not working

ports(com&lpt)right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems for a computer and its parts

click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x

right click to reinstall drivers

hope this helps

My Maxtor 3200 ext. drive which I had for one year now (no pbs.) not being recognized by my system and I see a Code 10 error in the Device Manager.


first you can use your troubleshooter in your device manager to find out what that code 10 error is or you can go to the maxtor website in the support or troubleshoot section and tell them your code 10 error,it might be a driver needs to be updated.

Iomega 250Gb stopped working


Hi, according to Microsoft Support: Code 10: 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) (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310123) Recommended resolution: Device failed to start. Click Update Driver to update the drivers for this device. On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard. Uninstalling and reinstalling does not fix, then you have to right click and updtae drivers assuming you have enabled you Automatic Updates. Hope this be of some help. Pls post again how things turn up or if we can be of further assistance. Good luck.
