A Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008-based computer crashes when an application sends an I/O request to a USB-based CD-ROM drive
Consider the following scenario:
- You have a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008.
- A USB-based CD-ROM drive is connected to the computer.
- An application sends an input/output (I/O) request IOCTL_SCSI_PASS_THROUGH_DIRECT to the CD-ROM drive.
In this scenario, the computer crashes. Additionally, you may receive a Stop error message on a blue screen. The Stop error message resembles the following:
STOP 0x000000D1, (parameter1. parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)
