    bad_pool_caller when using External storage.


    So whenever I try to plug in my Lacie 500gb external hard drive or a memory-stick, my PC shuts down, and I get a blue-screen with the the error code bad_pool_caller.

    I recently updated from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1. But i simply can not remember if I have ever tried plugging an external memory device with my new OS



    Any help is appreciated

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!


    Only 23 updates installed. I'm not familiar with 8.1, so please check Windows Update to ensure that you have ALL updates.

    SSD's were temperamental when they first came out, but their reliability has improved greatly over the last year or two. There are 2 things that MUST be checked on systems with BSOD's and SSD's:
    1) That the SSD firmware is the latest available for the SSD
    2) That the storage controller drivers on the motherboard are the most recent. They must date from late 2012 or later. This is ALL controllers, not just the one that the SSD is attached to.
    Intel HiDefinition Audio drivers aren't working. Please download a fresh copy and reinstall them.

    The memory dumps blame your Intel Rapid Storage Technology (RST) drivers. Please download and install the latest version available from the manufacturer's website. If not available there, you can also get them from http://downloadcenter.intel.com

    If all of this doesn't stop the BSOD's, please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings

    As it's also possible that this is a hardware problem, please run these free hardware diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics. Let us know the results and we can move on from there.
