Try right clicking on the device and clicking update driver, use the CD for your USB device to install the drivers... Perhaps you have a driver problem... Code 10 means that the device cannot start but usually this is caused by a problem with the driver...

Both of those articles talk about the same thing I mentioned above, you need to update the drivers...  Do you get the same error showing on all of the devices you plug in?  have you attempted other USB Ports?  are you using a USB Hub?
