    maybe the driver for it got deleted: plug it in, go to device manager and click; search for new hardware.

    maybe the data on the card is corrupt: plug it into a computer that can read it and do a quick format.

    maybe the "lock" on it is on: some cards come with a read protect switch on the side.

    maybe you're putting it in backwards: hey people sometimes mistakenly put cd's in upside down.... it could happen.

    ring ring... hello IT, have you tried turning it off and on again.

    It has to do with a registry error, try running CCleaner or CC cleaner or w/e it's called.

    It's CCleaner.

    Ichigo, it's an app that can clean up various junk files on your computer (freeing up space on your hard drive) and can also find bad/obsolete/unnecessary registry entries and remove them for you.

    GOOGLE... why hast thou forsaken it?

    the IT thing is from a show called the IT crowd... its hilarious stuff. anyway...

    Follow the steps below to troubleshoot this scenario and make your USB device work again.


    1) If you are using a USB cable with your device, check the cable to make sure it matches the speed of the device. Use USB 2.0 cables with USB 2.0 devices and USB 1.1 cables with USB 1.1 devices. Swap cables and check the device, if this does not work, proceed to Step 2.

    2) Next, open Device Manager and look under the heading for USB Serial Bus Controllers. If there is a device with a yellow exclamation mark next to it such as USB Mass Storage Device. Double-click on the entry and check the Device Status. If the status shows something like

    "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

    proceed to Step 3.

    3) The easiest way to solve a USB error code 10 in Windows XP is to follow the steps below to remove and reinstall all USB controllers.

    A. Click on Start
    B. Right Click on My Computer, click on Properties
    C.Click on the Hardware tab
    D. Click the Device Manager button.
    E. Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers section.
    F. Right-click every device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers node, and then click Uninstall to remove them one at a time.
    G. Restart the computer, and allow the computer to reinstall the USB controllers.
    H. Plug in the removable USB storage device, and then test to make sure that the issue is resolved.
