USB Error, This device cannot start. (Code 10) - Solved

Specs: Windows 7
Just FYI, I'm reporting my problem and the solution I found here from a three-year old thread. I could not access my USB drive after using a Disk Wipe utility program to scrub it. I could not access the USB drive after that, no file system letter, just a "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" error.

There were many internet threads about how to reload USB drivers, but that was not my problem. Fortunately, I saw an old post here to look in DISK MANAGEMENT (search under Control Panel, or ... Computer Mgmt / Storage Mgmt / Disk Mgmt). The USB device was visible there, with no file system. I was able to create a new NTFS (on Windows 7) and it worked after that.
