Hello,
I have a 32GB HP pen drive that was working fine for 5 days. One day when I scanning an antivirus software then Suddenly the pen drive is not showing on my computer and also I received an error code: Device status "This device cannot start. (Code 10)", but it is howing on "Devices and Printer" section. So, can you please help me to fix the problem and way to show it on my PC ?
My operating system is Windows 7 Ultimate... 64bit, and my pen drive model is HP v210w .

This type issue could be caused by a USB virus. It will spread to all of your USB memory devices and hard disk.

Here is a tool to remove the virus and vaccinate your USB against further viruses.


Download UsbFix (created by El Desaparecido) on your desktop.

http://ccm.net/download/download-24089-usbfix

If your antivirus gives an alert, ignore it and temporarily deactivate the antivirus.
Plug in your usb devices (Flash drive, pen drive. External HD etc...) don't open them.
Double click sur UsbFix.exe.

Click on deletion
.
Let the tool work.

At the end of the scan a report will show which you can copy and paste here..

The report is save at the root ( C:\UsbFix.txt ).

You can also vaccinate against any virus.

Does it work on other computers? If so you may only need to fix your USB drive. Search for Microsoft USB Fixit and download it.

But sad to say, I had the same USB with the same problem. It seems that the issue is common on this type of pen drive. Don't buy one again.
