Question about Memorex Ultra Traveldrive - 80GB 80 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Detected With Error Code 10 in Device Manager in Windows XP

My computer needs auxilliary power supply for the Memorex Ultra TracelDrive (80 GB) external disk. It worked perfectly fine for the last couple of months. Yesterday, by some urgency I connected it to a different port than I generally used to and a message flashed on the taskbar - "the USB port is drawing more power than is usual" or something of that sort. Panicked I just plugged the drive off BEFORE following safe removal procedure. Now, though the BLUE light is ON the GREEN/RED is NOT and the drive is not being displayed in my computer. In device manager I see a yellow baloon with an exclamation sign and an ERROR CODE 10 (for wich "the windows can't start it"). I uninstalled and reinstalled the USB drive several times but to no avail. The TravelDrive doesn't work in other PC's too any more. Is it gone? Is it possible to recover the data?

Have you tried also plugging in the DC usb cable into the traveldrive? I was having problems where my computer wasn't working properly with my drive unless I had it either plugged into a powered usb drive/hub or I had the DC plug in as well.

I have a Memorex Ultra Drive connected via USB to a Windows XP machine. It shows up in My Computer as a folder but then disappears again. It does this repeatedly. The drive is formated as a FAT32. How...


Hi,

As you have described that your Memorex Ultra Traveldrive re-appears repeatedly, indicates that the communication between your computer and your external hard drive is intermittent. The FAT32 format does not produce these types of issues. What we can do first is identify what causes the problem.

Assuming that the hard drive in your Memorex Ultra Traveldrive is in good shape:

Troubleshooting Method #1. Try connecting your Memorex Ultra Traveldrive into another USB port. If the problem persists, use another USB cable for your external hard drive. If the problem still persists, you will have to replace the external casing of your external hard drive. If your external hard drive works with the other USB port perfectly, most likely, the USB port where you originally plug into of your Windows XP machine needs to be checked. That USB port might need some repairing.

Troubleshooting Method #2. Try connecting the external hard drive into another computer and perform the same troubleshooting as Method #1. If your external hard drive works with other computers perfectly, most likely, the USB port where you originally plug into of your Windows XP machine needs to be checked. The USB port might need some repairing.

If the problem only occurs with your Windows XP machine, assuming all USB ports are in good shape, your Windows XP needs to be checked for some software issues.


I hope this works for you. Kindly reply/comment for further assistance. Good Luck!

Open Windows Help and Support.

One thing is if the drive draws more than the alloted .5 amp from the USB it the motherboard will turn off the power. SOME of these drives require a 5 volt external power supply. Some of them rob two USB ports to get adequate power.

HDD unable to detect at My Computer


Well first I would pull the hard drive out of the case. I would then get a USB to IDE/SATA drive cable. I would connect the drive not being able to be detected to another computer via USB.

If it works the drive is still good but the data might be corrupt. If the data is corrupt I would be sure to get any stuff you can off of it and basically reformat and reload.

To uninstall a device
  1. Open Device Manager.
  2. Double-click the type of device that you want to uninstall.
  3. Right-click the specific device you want, and then click Uninstall. You can also double-click the device, and then on the Driver tab, click Uninstall.
  4. In the Confirm Device Removal page, select Delete the driver software for this device if you also want to remove the device driver package from the driver store. .
    The Delete the driver software for this device option removes the package from the driver store. It does not remove the currently installed driver for any other operational devices that use the same driver. If you remove the driver from the store, and the device is connected to the computer again, Windows must search for a copy of the driver package in the standard search locations, including possibly prompting the user for media. This option is the equivalent of running the command: pnputil -d -f <package.inf>. For more information, see Remove a Driver Package from the Driver Store.
  5. Click OK to complete the uninstall process.
  6. When the uninstall process is complete, unplug the device from the computer.
    If you are prompted to restart the computer, the removal is not completed and the device might continue to function until the computer is restarted.
Reinstall a Plug and Play device Reinstall a device only if it is working improperly or it has stopped working altogether. Before you reinstall a device, try to restart your computer and check the device to determine whether it is functioning properly. If it is not, try reinstalling the device.
To reinstall a Plug and Play device
  1. Open Device Manager.
  2. Follow the instructions in the preceding procedure to uninstall the device.
  3. If you are prompted to restart the computer, follow these steps:
    • Plug in the device and then restart the computer. The device will be detected and reinstalled after Windows restarts.
    • Follow any instructions on-screen to complete installation.
  4. If you are not prompted to restart the computer, follow these steps:
    • In Device Manager, in the Action menu, click Scan for hardware changes.
    • Follow the instructions on the screen.
