    Hi Yanniclord. Welcome to EightForums.

    Are you using the remove hardware safely option on the notification bar on desktop ?

    Yes i do. Nothing happends while it is still plugged in. But when i remove it then it crashes. It says: Your Computer Ran Into a Problem. INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE. And no im not using Windows to Go. And Welcome to eight forums is funny though since im a long member of Sevenforums

    I was not a member of 7 forums.

    Can't imagine what it could be. Try this: Automatic Repair - Run in Windows 8

    Please let me know how it goes.

    I've noticed a lot of driver problems on the forum with 8. What device driver is it? Generic or specific for drive? Does the driver look ok in Device Manager? Perhaps use option to look for updated driver?

    You can also try www.eightforums.com/showthread.php?t=3047

    Hope this helps.

    No no its generally every Save Device. Not a USB Stick from Mouse or Keyboard. But Save Storage Devices causes the crashes.

    Any Solution? Oh and i allready did system file check. Let me guess now you are going to say: Deinstall Windows 8 and Reinstall it on your HDD.

    Is there an other option than that?
