Cd-dvd rom error code 10. failed to start

Hi..i have problems with my cd/dvd rom. I use an "Optiarc DVD+-RW AD-5540A ATA device" on a "Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop" running Windows vista. In device manager it shows as having error code 10: the device failed to start. In my computer, the device doesnt show and hence it doesnt read any discs. Any ideas wat might be causing the problem? Updating device drivers doesnt help. And i havent tried system restore because im worried about data loss, and, im not sure if it helps. Wat would happen if i uninstall the device? How would i be able to install it again?...but more importantly, how can i get it running again??? I hav checked for solutions and microsoft hasnt got any yet.
please help...

    I have exactly the same issue on the same computer... I visited the Vista forum where they recommend to download Registry Booster which I did, but to remove more than 15 errors (according to this trial program, I had over 500 and no, I don't watch porn or download free music or anything!!!), you need to pay $29.95. If the program works, I'll give it a go, anyone tried?

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


God Bless

Optiarc dvd rw ad-7561a ata device unplugged


Check BIOS for Optical drive. Press F key noted on boot screen to enter. If it's not noted there, you need to check physical connections. Might just need to be re-seated with power disconnected. Re-check BIOS and make sure to save before exiting.

If it is noted in BIOS and Windows still fails to see the drive. Run a thorough virus scan, then boot into Safe Mode by pressing F8 during startup. Go to Device Manager, and select Show Hidden devices under the View tab. Delete all drives and reboot. Windows should say new hardware found and install.

This should take care of the problem if there is nothing wrong with the drive. Replace or seek professional support is not, and good luck

Optiarc DVD RW AD-7561A This device cannot start. (Code 10)


I beleive that this code is being displayed under the Device Status in the Properties window of the DVD Drive in Device Manager.
If it is so, you need to do some modifications with the Registry to resolve the issue and I am sure that the issue will be resolved with this.
However, since you had not specified the Operating System which is installed in the Notebook is Vista or XP.
However, I am providing the links which includes the steps for both Vista and XP to edit the registry to resolve the issue with Error Code 10 with the DVD Drive in your Notebook.
Removing Upper and Lower Filter in XP :
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060

You need to perform the steps listed under Advanced Troubleshooting to delete the Upper and Lower filters.

Removing Upper and Lower Filter in Vista :
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461/en-us
You need to perform the steps listed under Resolution in the link above.
You may not find both the Upper and Lower filters according to the instructions links provided above.
Delete the ones among the Upper filter or Lower filter or both which you find in the locations mentioned.
This should solve the issue...
