BSOD Whenever Flash Drive, Phone, Camera 1st Plugged In
Whenever I plug camera, phone or flash drive into any USB port, get Blue Screen within 15 seconds. Also when trying to use RW CD's or trying to partition unallocated disk space. Interesting exceptions: Simple camera that writes direct to card, vs cameras with file systems, and one old flash drive out of four tested. BSOD failure code 0X0000003b, 0X0(8)c0(6)5, 0Xf(5)80002a8db87. Memory dumps point to NTOSKERNAL.exe - 5a490. Have run malwarebyte several anti-virus, ****** This, scannow, CHKDSK, and SMART disk cks. Scan now says some corrupted files could not be replaced but can not access list. Ran in cold start, reseated memory and power cables, ran Windows memory test, removed anti-virus. Reinstalled all USB/hub drivers, disconnected and uninstalled USB 3.0 card and front panel USB 2.0 ports. Nothing has changed.
Can not associate problem with any HW/SW change, except some experimenting with memory boost was attempted but aborted a good while ago. Problem may have existed unnoticed since then as I seldom use USB ports. Sys Restore point was too new to fix problem upon discovery.
Foxconn DD33M04 MB with Intel Core 2 Quad, 6Gb memory, dual internal Samsung and one external drive, Vista HP with SP2 updated daily. Have full BSOD screen data and CBS files if requested.
Final advice from others is to update BIOS, current version 1.0.3. Don't know how to do that and don't want to learn unless there is high probability this will fix problem. Also considering Win7 upgrade as possible fix.
Working this for two months. Any help much appreciated.
Testimonial: "Thanks Joel! Will keep that in mind. However, good news late last night. I did another cold start and brought up services one at a time till I found PerfectDisk engine was causing the failure. I uninstalled PerfectDisk, disk management software, last night and seem to have problem resolved, but still stress testing this morning. Don't know why I didn't find this on 1st cold start months ago. I'd far rather work on a '48 Chevy than trying to diagnose computer problems with such limited tools. Tom"

If you expect the music files on the flash drive you plugged into the USB port to start playing by themselves, good luck with that. You have to open a media player application (say Windows Media Player), open the removable disk that is your flash drive from within the application, select an .MP3 file from the flash drive and play it.
The memory stick becomes another drive, when plugged into the USB port. Some sticks have a write protect, which is a teeny tiny switch. If the switch is in the protect position, you can read but not write any data to the drive. Often the drive will be listed after all of your camera card ports.
To view the drive press and hold the Windows key and press the letter E. and then release both. The available drives should show up there.
if your camera has a sd card you can simply upload it to your laptop by using a flash drive in the usb port, if you don't have a sd card see if your camera has a usb port and plug it into the computer. go to my computer and look for the plug it's plugged into and you should be able to upload it that way
U NEED TO FORMAT IT 1ST INSERT THE FLASH DRIVE GO TO MY COMPUTER GO TO THAT DRIVE IT MYT B NAMED AS STORAGE (E) OR (F) DAN RIGHT CLICK ON IT SCROLL DOWN TO PROPERTIES CHOOSE FORMAT AND SELECT QUICK FORMAT. HOPE THIS IS HELPFULLY. :)
Files on a flash drive can be corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly. Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon and then click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flash drive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove. To restore the flash drive you need to format the flash drive, but you will lose the data stored on the flash drive. If you need the data on the flash drive these WEB sites may help: - Data and Digital Photo Recovery www.artplus.hr/adapps/eng/dpr.htm www.CardRecovery.com
Connect the HP camera to your windows pc using the usb cable provided. Open My Computer to ensure that the camera is being properly enumerated (given a hard disk letter). make note of the drive letter assigned.
If you have more than one USB port, insert your cruzer micro 2.0 stick into another USB port. Look in my computer again to determine what drive letter was assigned to the flash stick. Open a windows explorer window for each of the locations. One for the camera, the other for the flash stick. Its likely that the picture files are in a subfolder of a folder called DCIM.
Once you locate the files you want to transfer, you can highlight them using the mouse (click/drag a box around the files you want) and drag them to the other open window (flash stick folder)
If you don't have another available USB slot on the compter, you'll need to copy the files from the camera to a temporary location on your computer and then move them to the flash drive. In this case, make a new folder on the desktop and name it temporaryfiles. open that folder. open the drive letter assigned to the camera and copy whatever files you want from the camera to 'temporaryfiles'...
Then power off the camera and remove the usb cord from the computer. attach the flash disk to the newly free'd up usb port and open a windows explorer window to it. drag whatever files you want from 'temporaryfiles' folder into the folder for the flash stick.
Can you please provide me some information from that Blue screen
(That Blue screen is known as BSOD - Blue Screen Of Death - As on that screen you dont have any OK / Cancel Button and you dont have any other option other that Restarting your system manually when BSOD appears thats why it is known as Blue Screen of Death -
Anyways the important information from that error screen is located in the Second Paragraph + Last paragraph where some Hex codes are written
I want that information
Because most probably this is NOT a virus problem but it is a Hardware problem with your USB port)
Loey, No camera CD is needed to download pics. When you plug your camera into a USB port, it will appear as a Drive in your MyComputer folder. You can then click on the drive letter assigned to it by Win to look at what is on it, just like you would look at files on your C: harddrive.
So the first step is to find out if Win is recognizing it in My Computer. It will probable be drive G: and will probably be named CAMERA or USB STORAGE device.
If it is, double click on it to Open it and find your Pic Files.
If it is not showing up, then some cameras have to be SetUp to be seen as a USB Storage Drive. Don't know about TZ3.
In any case, by you a SanDisk MobileMate SD+ mini card reader stick and dump stupid and sometimes unique USB Cables. Also doesn't''t use your camera battery power to view and download, your pics. It uses your USB Port Power and again looks like a USB Flash Drive in your My Computer. NICE!
