Windows 7: Exclaimation mark by WPD FileSystem Volume Driver

13 Nov 2009   #1

Windows XP
Exclaimation mark by WPD FileSystem Volume Driver

I have a yellow exclaimation mark by a device under Portable Devices in Device Manager. It is titled WPD FileSystem Volumne Driver.

I tried Updating the driver but I get back a message saying I have the latest driver. Under properties for the driver it says, "This device cannot start. (Code 10).

As far as I know my sound and volumes are working correctly. Is it safe to just deleted this driver?

I had the same problem. Thanks Microsoft. Really love your version of "convenience".

HP has once fix for it. Your mileage may vary (YMMV).

Installed it, rebooted and waited a little bit. It did detect it and installed it as expected, but then went into a detect and install loop.

I have mine installed in a Vostro 260 and the manufacture of my unit is SYBA

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Thanks Azzubair, that worked for me. I have a USB stick which suddenly stopped being recognised by Laptop #1 but is recognised by Laptop #2. Your fix now allows Laptop #1 to see the stick.

The simplest way I can think of is using cmd. Here are the steps.
1. Open elevated CMD.
2. Type diskpart.
3. Type list disk.
4. In the result, choose your drive by the disk size.
5. Type select disk x (x being the disk number of the one you want.)
6. Type assign.
That's it
