  2. Seagate will not work in Windows 10 (Code 38) device driver problem

    Hi Jeff,

    Code 38 error code appears on your system, when Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware because a previous instance of the device driver is still in memory.



    For your future reference, you could resolve Code 38 error code by running hardware troubleshooter and by performing a system restart.


    Thank you for updating with the issue status. Good to know the issue is fixed.

    Safely remove hardware is still available in Windows 10. You will get this option, when the USB device is connected properly and Windows can detect it. To use this option you have to go to the notification area click on the arrow it will list you the connected
    external devices, right click on the device you want to remove and select Safe to remove hardware.


    You can also could right click on the external hard drive or external USB device from file explorer and click on "Eject" option to safely remove the hardware on your system.

    Hope the above information helps. Reply with necessary information and the result to help you further.



    Thank you.

    Hi,

    Code 45

    Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)
    This error occurs if a device that was previously connected to the computer is no longer connected. To resolve this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer.

    No resolution is necessary. This error code is only used to indicate the disconnected status of the device and does not require you to resolve it. The error code resolves automatically when you connect the associated device to the computer.

    Additional information

    If Device Manager is started with the environment variable

    DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES
    set to 1 (which means show these devices), any previously attached (NONPRESENT) devices are displayed in the device list and assigned this error code.

    Code 38

    Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware because a previous instance of the device driver is still in memory. (Code 38)
    The driver could not be loaded because a previous instance is still loaded. Restart the computer.

    Use the Troubleshooting Wizard

    If you have not already run the Troubleshooting Wizard, do so now.

    • In the device's Properties dialog box, click the General tab.
    • Click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard. The wizard asks you some simple questions and provides a solution to your problem based on the answers that you provide.
    • Follow the resolution steps provided by the wizard to resolve the problem.
    Restart your computer

    Click Start, click Shut Down, and then select
    Restart
    in the Shut Down Windows dialog box to restart the computer.

    As you are using VPN I suggest you to post your query in
    TechNet
    forum which is better suited for the issue. Thank you.
