Microsoft revealed on its official website the changes that are coming to the next Windows 10 Insider build.

Being a Windows 10 Insider Preview Build, only users that are part of the Windows Insider program can test out these particular versions before they are officially released.

In the case of Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19541, only Fast Ring users get to test the latest features.

Given this is a Fast Ring release, it is the preview version with the most bugs and issues possible.

USB 3.0 error 10 should be fixed next week

One particular bug that stands out is the issue where certain external USB 3.0 drives are not responding. Instead Start Code 10 appears on the screen after users plugged in their USB devices.

No further details were given regarding how this issue could be reproduced. However, since Microsoft officially acknowledged the problem and confirmed they’re working on a fix, this shouldn’t be much of an issue in the next build release.

We’re looking into reports of certain external USB 3.0 drives not responding with Start Code 10 after they’re attached.

Let us hope Microsoft fixes this problem in the next build release. Usually, Microsoft’s engineers are quick to solve the acknowledged problems.
