  1. Everytime I insert a Flash drive, not just any usb device, but a flash drive. Any flash drive, I have tried several of them with the same result. BSOD.

    I appreciate thehelp. Thanks in advance.

    Here is the minidump read from the debugger

    This means a trap occurred in kernel mode, and it's a trap of a kind
    that the kernel isn't allowed to have/catch (bound trap) or that
    is always instant death (double fault). The first number in the
    bugcheck params is the number of the trap (8 = double fault, etc)
    Consult an Intel x86 family manual to learn more about what these
    traps are. Here is a *portion* of those codes:
    If kv shows a taskGate
    use .tss on the part before the colon, then kv.
    Else if kv shows a trapframe
    use .trap on that value
    .trap on the appropriate frame will show where the trap was taken
    (on x86, this will be the ebp that goes with the procedure KiTrap)
    kb will then show the corrected stack.
    Arg1: 00000008, EXCEPTION_DOUBLE_FAULT
    Arg2: ba350d70
    Arg3: 00000000
    Arg4: 00000000

    You say that ANY flash drive will cause this problem.
    One possibility is that making your paging file larger may help.
    Another possibility is defective thumb drives.
    Another possibility is that an infected drive has now infected your computer.
    If you force the drive there is a chance of shorting your hub, and rendering it useless.
    • Are all the flash drives you have tried the same size?
    • Are they all the same make (purchased from the same source/same lot perhaps)?
    • Have any of them ever been used in any other system besides yours?
    • Was it in a SEALED package when purchased?
    • Are you certain that you are installing them properly? (They will only go in one direction, and should not be forced).
    • Do other usb devices work properly when attached to the same port?
