Uh-oh!!! Arduino + Vista = BSOD?!?!

by magician13134 on Thu Jul 03, 2008 11:27 am

I've been using my Arduino with Vista for awhile now, but I recently got an LCD screen, and wrote a quick program to send iTunes stuff via serial to the Arduino. I make sure to always close that program before unplugging the Arduino, otherwise it crashes (just, "This program has stopped working, end now?"), but occasionally (about 1 out of every 20 times I unplug it), my computer gets a BSOD and totally crashes. It is able to reboot and is fine... but I'm scared to plug in my Arduino now, has anyone else had this problem?
