Problem: BSOD upon USB mass storage insert (BAD_POOL_CALLER)
I have a recurring and repeatable problem where whenever I insert a USB mass storage device, I immediately encounter a BSOD error citing a BAD_POOL_CALLER error. Strangely, when I insert USB devices not based on mass storage, like a USB mouse, the computer does not produce the error. Trying other things I have lying around, an 16GB FAT32 formatted flash drive, a microSD adaptor (no microSD), and XBox 360 transfer cable all error out. BUT, a optical drive or 256 MB FAT formatted USB drive does NOT error out. I hesitate to try more things since each problem device causes system reboot.
Assuming this problem resulted from recent driver updates I routinely perform, I have re-installed multiple times various versions of Intel's Rapid Storage Technology, INF Chipset Device Software as well as Management Engine Interface. However, the problem persisted through these installations. Also, the problem still arises in Safe Mode.
In the zip file linked below, I have included three minidumps resulting from the BSODs as well as a minidump after utilizing driver verification as specified in other threads. However, the computer crashed at startup when set for driver verification. Additionally, there is an MSInfo32.nfo file for hardware info as well as a log file after running system file checker.
As you can see, I've exhausted my normal attempts to fix problems like this and would appreciate any help that would be provided. My hope is that this is not a hardware problem.
Thanks in advance.
