    I cannot open preferences, and am told I have error code 10657.


    Anyone know what's wrong please?

     I got error code - 10657 on my G5 imac saying it could not perform the operation when I tried to see if I could read something backed up by time machine on a simpletech 250 G hard drive.  I was trying to see if I could read my addressbook.  Spent $1,000.00 previously at a data recovery place and wanted to make sure that my external back up is working.  Not sure what to do or who to call to figure this one out. Should I call the apple store or the makers of the hard drive? or is this something simple I can figure out with little help from someone more computer smart than me.

    I just started using the time machine feature specifically for iPhoto library backups but I get 'error 10657' message when I try to find the backups.
    What is happening? Are the photos not backing up?

    I have just backed up my Macintosh MacBook Pro computer to a LaCie 4Big Quattro - a professional data backup system. When it backs up I get the same message that I can not open the files that I had backed up onto the data backup system. I can view them from Mac's finder within the hard drive. Although I'm not quite sure I think that the problem might be that the backup is being backedup and stored as an image. Since I have not yet attempted to restore the image using the Mac's backup/restore feature I'm leaning toward the thought that while the image might be viewable as individual files and/or applications, until it actually get "restored" then it is not usable.

    Does anyone else share this thought or is it just me?

    I can't open anything on my eternal drive backed up with time machine.

  • jburik Apr 27, 2009

    I have an older ethernet mini. Have not been able to connect via afp:// . . . from the Go menu. I read on some of the forums that LaCie stores info on the drive itself which can be corrupted if the drive's not shut down properly, e.g. power outage. There's a file, something like .AppleDB which needs to be restored.


    I used Terminal to get to /Volumes and found the drive, but no luck finding the DB mentioned above.

I got error code 10657 when I tried to open a file in Finder on the external drive that I had used for a Time Machine backup before I reformatted the hard drive of my MacBook. When I started Time Machine on the MacBook (with Leopard reinstalled) and went to the backup date that held the desired file, I was told that I needed to recreate the containing folder (or choose another location for the restore). I chose recreate the folder, and the restored file was available in the new folder without any further problem.

The CHOWN statement has a problem with the parameters. I also noticed after fixing the permissions of the Pictures folder and subfolders (was "700", now "755"), I was still experiencing the iPhoto launch problem. My solution, after noticing that I could go to Terminal and launch the application from /Applications/iPhoto.app/Contents/Mac OS/iPhoto, was that ownership of the files in the application was not correct. My fix: Bring up the Get Info on the iPhoto application in the Applications folder and manually add myself as a user. (I guess you could also add "Everyone".) This solved the issue to me. Caveat: Launching iPhoto from the old icon on the Dock still returned the error! :confused: I had to launch the application from the Applications folder, then use the Keep In Dock function and trashed the old iPhoto icon. -Aaron-

Some applications may be causing a conflict. Many times runtime errors are a result of incompatibility between two or more programs. Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys simultaneously to open Windows Task Manager. From the "Applications" tab, close each open application until the runtime error is resolved. Check for patches, bug fixes or upgrades by visiting the manufacturer's website. Search for your product and determine whether there are downloads to fix the problem your PC is experiencing. When none of the above fixes help, reinstall the troubling program. In severe cases, you may need to reinstall your operating system. Make sure that you back up the other programs and files you want to preserve, which may be erased during the re-installation. Hope this helps.

My Buffalo 1TB Ext.Hard drive is not showing on my list of drives on my computer. It shows (in the device manager) an error Code 10..What does this mean?What can I do to fix the problem? Thank you


Almost all Windows operating system users come across system errors at one time or another. A flickering or blank screen, frozen cursor, blue screen, or an unexpected system restart are all indications of a system error. Most of these errors display an error message that you can use to troubleshoot and fix the problem. In this article, we will learn about the code 10 error and then have a look at common causes of system errors and methods to prevent them.
How to Fix a Code 10 Error
A Code 10 error usually occurs 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.
Causes of System Errors
System Errors Usually Occur due to:
  • Device driver conflicts
  • Corrupt or damaged software files
  • Malfunctioning hardware
  • Corrupt or damaged system registry
  • Virus or spyware infection
Steps to Prevent System Errors
With a little vigilance and extra precaution you can easily prevent most system errors. Some of the tasks that you can perform to prevent system errors are listed below:
  • Keep your operating system, device drivers, and software applications updated with the latest hot fixes, security releases, and updates.
  • Run regular antivirus and anti spyware scans to keep your PC free from harmful and disastrous malware. Always keep these software updated with the latest security releases so that your system is always protected against malware infections.
  • Avoid opening attachments of unsolicited emails and visiting dubious websites.
  • Do not download freeware and shareware from websites whose authenticity you aren't sure of.
  • Be very careful while downloading ActiveX controls from various websites. ActiveX controls provide their master with complete control over your system and therefore, a malicious ActiveX control can cause severe damage to your system and may also enable a hacker to steal your personal information.
  • Last but not least, perform regular registry maintenance to ensure that your registry is free from errors. 90% of all system errors are connected to the system registry in one way or another. You can easily perform registry maintenance with the help of a registry cleaner such as RegGenie. This software will provide you with a simple-to-use graphical interface and enable you to scan and clean registry errors in just a few mouse clicks.
System errors are common on Windows systems and can occur due to a number of reasons, including problems with device drivers, hardware, software applications, and the system registry. Code 10 is one such system error that occurs due to problems with a device driver. You can fix this error by updating the faulty device driver. Preventive maintenance with the help of antivirus software, registry cleaners, and a certain amount of vigilance while working on the Internet can help you keep your PC free from system errors.
Additional Recommendations...
Driver Update: Many errors are related to driver problems such as obsolete, outdated or incompatible drivers. A driver update tool is recommended to scan your system for corrupted and outdated drivers and to ensure that all your drivers stay up-to-date.

Sorry, the operation could not be completed because an unexpected error occurred. (error code 0)


The disk-drive has malfunctioned.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service".
For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive,
just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

If it still has a valid WARRANTY, exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

If the warranty has expired, then open the case, remove the disk-drive, buy a new "compatible" disk-drive, connect it, and thus "revive" your external storage device.

I have a 500GB hard drive that I am using with a Mac OS X 10.5. I have been working with iMovie file that are several GB in size and I can't save them onto my iOmega hard drive. I have tried starting a new...


First of all I would check what the file system is on your iOmega drive. If it is FAT32, then it will be unable to handle any files over 4GB in size.

If necessary, reformat it to a Mac friendly file system and retry.

If this doesn't help, please repost your problem including the exact text of any erro messages that you receive.

Hope this helps!
