Device manager shows problem

In Device Manger, under Portable Devices, "Microsoft WPD FileSystem Volume Driver" has an asterisk and this message: "This device cannot start. (Code 10)

Click 'Check for solutions' to send data about this device to Microsoft and to see if there is a solution available."

Coincidentally I have a 3 port USB card in one of the motherboard slots that isn't working right. If I plug in a thumb drive, it tells me "USB device is not recognized". The card has been in for over a year and has worked fine.

Do you think the problems are related? Is an add in USB card considered a "portabel device"?

  1. Turns out the USB card is not a card, but plugs into the MB and was partially unplugged.
    But I still have the problem in device manager.
  2. what is it under?


    System Bus? or USB?
  3. It is under "portable devices".

  14. After you have installed Windows OS get the motherboard software and install the chipset drivers then restart. If that thumb drive works on other computer well then you might have a problem with your motherboard. Try checking the motherboard manufacturer's web site for an update to their bios.
