The spin test I use is to put a CD in with the label right side up and then put in in and let it read it. If the CD rotation is the same when it ejects then I know to replace the drive. That's a rare failure but does happen.
As to CODE 10 I use the same fixes as CODE 39. More at http://www.pchell.com/hardware/cd_drive_error_code_39.shtml
Have a code 10 error in device manager for my cd/dvd drive.
Model is a Pioneer DVD/RW K17B ATA. Running on an HP Pavillion V6700 Vista machine.
Anyone have the solution to make it work? Door releases. Drive doesn?t spin or read. Went to Pioneer site?useless. A search on the net shows a lot of people having problems with the drive.
