i just found this form when i was googling about "This device cannot start. (Code 10) " … & i hope some one could save me before i went to one of those fancy back up $hops out there …
it all begin when i disconnected my USB hard disk & connect a flash memory …then disconnected it , and restart my pc … and connect the USB hard disk … and " windows found a new device " … " USB mass storage device " … "your hardware may not work probably … " .
went to the device manger and got a yellow shaded strip over " USB mass storage device " …
things i’ve try ( and didn’t work ) :-
system restore .
change the USB cable with a new one .
tried to connect the hard disk to another computer ( actually they’re 3 ! )
uninstall the driver and get into the safe mode trying to install it ( i thought that windows pick the wrong driver so by uninstalling it and restart it well get the right driver )
