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.

The Code 10 error is one of several Device Manager error codes. The Code 10 error will almost always display in the following way:
"This device cannot start. (Code 10)"
Details on Device Manager error codes like Code 10 are available in the Device Status area in the device's properties: How To View a Device's Status in Device Manager.
Important: Device Manager error codes are exclusive to Device Manager. If you see the Code 10 error elsewhere in Windows, chances are it's a system error code which you should not troubleshoot as a Device Manager issue.
Cause of the Code 10 Error
A Code 10 error is generated when Device Manager can't start the hardware device, a situation usually caused by outdated or corrupted drivers.
A device may also receive a Code 10 error if a driver generates an error that Device Manager doesn't understand. In other words, a Code 10 error can sometimes be a very generic message indicating some kind of unspecified driver or hardware problem.
Error Code 10 Troubleshooting
1.Restart your computer if you haven't done so already.
There is always the chance that the error Code 10 you're seeing on a device was caused by some temporary problem in Device Manager or with the hardware. If so, a reboot might fix the Code 10 error.

2.Did you install a device or make a change in Device Manager just before the Code 10 error appeared? If so, it's very possible that the change you made caused the Code 10 error.
Undo the change if you can, restart your PC, and then check again for the Code 10 error.
Depending on the changes you made, some solutions might include:
•Remove or reconfigure the newly installed device.
•Roll back the driver to a version prior to your update.
•Use System Restore to undo recent Device Manager related changes.
3.Reinstall the drivers for the device. Uninstalling and then reinstalling the drivers for the device is a likely solution to a Code 10 error.
Important: If a USB 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. This includes any USB Mass Storage Device, USB Host Controller, and USB Root Hub.

From your description I understand that the DVD drive is not working and you have code 10 error in device manager.
Do not worry, run the following fix on the pc and then restart the notebook.

Optiarc DVD RW AD-5170a ata device. Cannot start code 10 error? any ideas why.


Possible cause of the problem:

1. Error 10 means that the drive driver is not properly or not installed in your computer.
2. You drive is broken.

Solutions:
1. Replug your drive wiring's inside the computer casing.
2. Check in the Device Manager in your computer if there is conflict in your drive. Go to Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager to do this.

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,

Chris

Optiarc cd-rw crx880a ata device: This device cannot start. (Code 10)


Did you try to click "Troubleshoot" on the page that reported "cannot start" ?


Did you try to click on the device, and choose "uninstall" ?
Then, rebooting Windows should cause Windows to "find new hardware", and properly configure the DVD/CD drive.

Cd-dvd rom error code 10. failed to start


Hi,

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
