Cd Drive Error Code 19 - Cannot Start Hardware Device

After installing windows 7, this error appears with my cd drive, windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19). My laptop ran windows xp, and i used the windows 7 compatibility software to see if windows 7 can work with my laptop and it was approved.

Long story short after i installed windows 7 i installed all the drivers the sony esupport told me to, however my cd drive isn't working. When i go to the device manager and click on its properties i get the following error message "windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)". I tried uninstalling the driver and restarting and that didn't fix the problem either.

Usb Headset - This Device Cannot Start - Code 10

I've just bought a usb headset today and tried to use it. I got a driver error message when first plugged in. The help system proved useless. After doing some searches on this forum i checked the device manager and found that the usb audio device properties indicates that 'this device cannot start. (Code 10)'. The forum entries suggests that many people are having similar problems.

Mine is a new windows 7 64 bit install on a new hard drive, but on an older pc hardware - asus a8n sli premium. Anyone got any suggestions as to resolving the problem. Note that a normal headset worked fine yesterday (but i broke it) plugged into the jack sockets but i wanted to use a usb headset so as to avoid having to keep going around the back of the pc to change to my 2. 1 speaker system.

Usb Devices - This Device Cannot Start (code 10)

"usb devices keep getting in error in device manager after computer reboot"hi. Whenever i reboot my computer 4 of my 5 usb ports are in error in device manager with error "this device cannot start. (Code 10)". I uninstall them, restart and they begin to work. Until next restart.

I've checked if the driver version is the same for all five usb ports and it's confirmed (driver version 6. 1. 7600. 16385 from microsoft). What can i do to solve it? Computer is a dell precision 490. Device is an intel (r) 82801g (ich family) usb universal host controller.

Usb Flash Drive - Usb Device Is Not Recognized

I have tried 4 different usb flash drives from different manufacturers and my usb hard drive from western digital. Windows 7 recognizes it until i start transferring files. Then it can't find the drive. When i unplug it and plug it back in, i get a notification that the usb device is not recognized. After i restart the computer, it does the same thing all over again. I ran vista before windows 7 and never had this problem. I am very frustrated. I must have access to my flash & external drives or windows 7 is useless to me.

Usb Flash Drive Device Not Working

I have about 3-4 flash drives. 2 from kingston and 2 from transcend. I'm having trouble using the 4 gb transcend flash drive and 32 gb kingston flash drive. Scenario 1> the transcend pen-drive: the device is not recognized after i plug it in and when i go to open it from start>computer  it gives me error message"please insert a disk into the removable disk. "

Troubleshooting done:

1> change the drive letter from disk management wizard(start> right click on computer>manage).

2> checked for usbstor value(3).

3> checked on numerous computers(xp, vista, windows 7)

4> deleting usb root hubs and controllers and allowing windows to re-install them.

5> updated bios. Scenario 2> with the 32gb kingston flash drive.

Unlike the transcend pendrive, this seems to behave very strangely. The problem arises after i tried to format the drive. Though data can be copied, it cannot be viewed. (Be it any files music, video, documents)troubleshooting done: same as the previous one.

Device Malfunctioned Error Code - 43 - Usb Device Not Recognized

I purchased a new computer with windows 7.initially my ipod worked fine with this computer. It still charges the ipod but nothing else. In addition it will not work on my old computer.

1. I have completely uninstalled and reinstalled itunes.

2. I reset the device losing all of my music.

3. I have gone to device manager and the ipod shows up as unkown device. I have stopped the device driver and rebooted.

4. I have tried to have attached to my old computer update and i receive the exact same error and usb not recognized message.

5. Other devices work fine on the usb hub, in addition i have tried the other usb hub.

All of the above measures have failed. This all started when i was having problems updating my music to the ipod, and i chose the restore function on the summary page of the itunes software, with the device attached, and recognized. Since then nothing? Initially when the device was attached after the restore option was chosen, i got need to attach to a 2. 0 usb  high speed hub, error message? It is a 2. 0 usb high speed device. I have reviewed other questions in this forum, on apples forums, all with the same results, nothing.

The driver installation reports successful installation on controllers and root hub however indicates a device failed at the end.

Device Cannot Start Code 10

I recently purchased windows 7 for home. I formatted the hard disk and did a full install. All works fine except there is no internet connectivity. 1) i identified that the network controller had no driver attached and in devices there was a yellow question mark. I loaded the broadcom 440x 10/100 driver found within windows 7 to receive the following message: "the device cannot start (code 10). How do i resolve this as i cannot seem to download this driver from anywhere and was reliant on the windows driver for this by the same name.

2) interestingly in devices there is a network adapter showing and that is working fine. I can't seem to identify what that is for and whether it is related to this problem. It shows up as an intel adapter.

3) i installed a dlink adapter for wireless and that does not show up anywhere.

I already check and mi device works fine on xp but on windows 7, i got this error message "this device cannot start. (Code 10)".

Usb Flash Drive Error - Volume Does Not Contain Recognized File System

I plugged in my usb flash drive into a computer using windows 7. It always prompts me to scan and fix or cancel. I canceled every time, but i got annoyed with it popping up every time, so i told it to scan and fix. A loading screen came up so i patiently waited. After completion it asks to format my usb flash drive. I can't format it though because i have homework files and all my other personal files on there. So i canceled the format, but every time i plug it into my computer it asks t format it. I even plugged it into a computer running on windows xp and it wanted to format it.

When i try to run it without formatting it it says, "e: is not accessible. The volume does not contain a recognized file system. Please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted. " My question is, what did windows 7 do to my flash drive and how do i recover my data?

Usb Composite Device Won't Start

I own a "miditech i2-49" midi keyboard, that connects to computer via usb. Under xp-32 bit it ran plug'n'play. Now with windows 7-64 bit it says "device cannot start (code 10)". Btw my system says it's a "ta horng" device (i believe it's the chip inside). I've searched for drivers all around, but all i've found, was a driver for 32 bit vista. I assumed, if they created a 64 bit driver for vista, it would work with my system, but that never happened. Their tech-support said, that they won't make 64 bit drivers, because they don't manufacture that product anymore, so now i don't see a solution, but buying a different keyboard. I'd be glad if someone had an idea about making it work.

I have run the psa test and it revealed the error code listed int he title of this message.

Usb Flash Drives Device Driver Software Not Successfully Installed

Usb external drives, usb flash drives "device driver software not successfully installed". Acer and windows 7 problem. Not sure which one i am more frustrated with. Acer or microsoft trying to get decent customer service out of either seems so difficult. Ok, its a common enough issue.

I've seen this everywhere in other forums and every finger points back to microsoft. Usb flash drives, jump drives, memory sticks, thumb drives, whatever they are called, they don't work on my acer laptop. Yet all work perfectly well on my vista pc and my work xp. So they are not damaged. Also a freecom external 1tb usb drive. Doesn't work on win 7.

I have an acer 5338 (less than a year old) which sadly as windows as an oem so microsoft aren't interested in helping saying it's acer's problem. Acers website doesn't even acknowledge existence of the the model laptop i have which makes contacting them for a solution physically impossible (anyone got a phone number or email address>). Anyway they had a free upgrade to win 7.

(Oh you cannot imagine how much i wish i hadn't. ). So i upgraded. And all usb memory devices suddenly don't work. Ll of them try to load drivers then give up with the error message. Just to get the usual answers out of the way!I've tested the usb ports. All work. I've uninstalled all the usb ports and let win 7 re-install them. No problem i've cleared the file that keeps records of drives.

I did a new clean install. Nothing changed. Can't upgrade chipset drivers. Won't let me, says i don't need them every drive appears during the boot screen. Every drive appears in device manager but showing as fault. Updated, installed, deleted, re-installed every driver on the planet. Tried the 'regedit' solution suggested elsewhere, fragged my laptop, lucky i system restored up. Doesn't appear on disk management so can't deal with any drive letter conflicts. Have no virus.

Have only one firewall installed. Have prayed have hit the flipping thing have pleaded have pretended to cry. Not interested. So, i am hoping against hope that someone has a solution to this issue. I have a vague thought that it could be something to do with 'ports' and port settings. That, i am afraid is a closed book to me, so please, geniuses everywhere, give me something new to try! Or a way to speak to a human at acer!

Error - Unknown Device - Usb Does Not Recognize Garmin Device

Just recently, windows 7 home premium addition has stopped detecting my garmin device. Other usb devices such as my ipod work fine. I was able to get it to detect the garmin only a few times, it would try to install the drivers but the drivers would fail to install. The garmin was working a few weeks ago. Below is a list of everything i have already tried:

Rebooting (after everything i try)
- Turning the computer off and leaving it unplugged overnight
- Completely uninstalling all drivers and software associated with the gamin.
- Manually installing drivers
- Uninstalling the unknown device and doing a search for new hardware
- Uninstalling the unknown device and doing a search for legacy hardware (this produces a device not functioning (code 10) error)
- Reverting back to a restore point before the last windows update

Please, any help would be very appreciated. I am decently computer savvy and have always been able to fix any problems that i have. This one has had me spinning my wheels for days.

Code 43 And Flash Drive Not Working

I am getting the error reading that my flash drive is corrupted. However, i have tried three different ones with the same message and they all work find on my laptop that is also running windows 7. I have tried uninstalling the device drivers and this has not worked. I have seen that others have had the same problem without much help that worked. I expect it may be a windows 7 bug. Haven't had this problem on any of microsoft's other operating systems and i have used them all.

Usb Flash Drive Problem

I have windows 7 on a dell inspiron 1525 (originally came with vista). Every time i use my flash drive to read or play files, or even just view files on windows explorer, it freezes up. The only way to fix it is to unplug it and wait, otherwise it will just sit there with a blank white screen. This never happened on my xp desktop. But what i wanted to do was back up my system. It seems to work until it reaches 25%.

That's when it freezes again. This also happens with a blank cd. The only external memory (besides an external hdd [i never tried that]) that works is a sd card. I don't have a high enough memory card so i'm stuck. I need something to back my system on.

Can't Erase From The Usb Flash Drive

I attempted to install a chrome os(portable) on to my 8gb flash drive, but it didn't work. But i can't erase it from the flash drive now because windows vista recognizes it as a unformatted drive and now reads as 720mb. I did not try to format the drive because i don't know if it will do further damage.

The software i used to install the .img file is win32diskimager (https://launchpad.net/win32-image-writer/+download), i used this software along with power iso all the time so i figured i knew how to install something from a flash drive i was wrong, the only thing i can possibly think of is a software program to decipher the type of .img it is and delete it.

Unable Eject Usb Flash Drive

I've recently installed windows 7 on my system and since then i am having problem in ejecting my usb devices. When ever i click on eject the pop-up notification in the system tray says "your hardware can be removed safely" but the light on the flash drive still keeps blinking and i can still access the drive. Even if i repeat the process of clicking on safely remove hardware at various location(system tray, devices and printers, my computer. ) I am still able to access the device despite the message "you can safely remove the hardware)

My flash drive has even produced bad sectors because of unplugging the device ignoring this.

Readyboost On 16gb Usb Flash Drive

Windows recommends reserving 15. 125 gb for ready boost on a 16 gb usb flash drive, but if i set it to that capacity the drive usage indicator turns from blue to red. Even though the stripe turns red it still shows a small amount of space available on the drive, but only around 570 mb. Should i ignore this red stripe or dial back the reserved space for ready boost? If i dedicate the entire device to ready boost it also turns red.

Will ready boost still function properly if the indicator is red when dedicated entirely to ready boost?

Autoplay Not Working For Usb Flash Drive

Auto-play works smoothly on my windows 7 pro 64 bit installation with one exception. For some reason, it will not initiate with my usb drive (formatted fat32). The drive shows up in explorer just fine. I have already gone into the control panel for autoplay, and changed just about every setting imaginable, to no avail.

This is not a huge deal, except that it would be nice for this device to have the same behavior as other autoplay type devices. Oh, by the way, autoplay works just fine with this usb thumb drive on my notebook.
