You start a Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1)-based computer or a Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2)-based computer. Certain Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IEEE) 1394 devices such as a hard disk drive or a digital video (DV) camera are not correctly enumerated.

When this problem occurs, a code 10 error may occur in Device Manager for one or more of the plugged-in 1394 devices.
This problem occurs when the IEEE 1394 bus is reset. A bus reset is a regular occurrence on the 1394 bus and occurs every time that you plug or unplug a 1394 device.
During a bus reset, the IEEE 1394 bus is reinitialized, and all 1394 devices are reenumerated on the bus. In this case, the IEEE 1394 device may not be correctly enumerated.

Note A code 10 error indicates that the 1394 device did not start.
