I am very new to all this...posting threads and such. And certainly not a techie. But, I have been getting error messages recently, since I bought an external Pioneer DVD writer. I've been able to burn DVDs for two months, but now when I try to burn a DVD my computer just shuts down. When I re-boot I get a serious error message. I just found out that I need a Hi-speed USB host controller, since I have an older '02 computer. I am buying that, but is that the reason for the error message? Or is it something else besides the USB? Here's the Error Message.

I've keep my Windows XP updated, but I do P2P. Could that be a problem?
