    Idea [I] Blue Screen of Death when Capturing with Dazzle (DVC 170/130) in Windows Vista

    BAD_POOL_HEADER Blue Screen of Death with Dazzle DVC 170/130

    Affected OS:  Windows Vista 32 bit
    Affected Programs: Instant DVD Recoder/Studio 10 and 11 (Standard, Quickstart and Plus)
    Affected Hardware: Dazzle Recorder Platinum and Dazzle DVD Recorder (DVC 170 and DVC 130)

    Problem:

     

    When either Instant DVD Recorder or Studio 10/11 is launched and detects incompatible Dazzle drivers the operating system halts to a BSOD and reboots the system.

    Cause:

     

    The Dazzle package comes with Studio 10.5 Quickstart and when installed in Windows Vista it installs an old version of the DVC 170/130 drivers. While the Quickstart is compatible and works well in Vista after being patched to 10.8 the driver is left installed and is associated to the device. When the a software calls for this old driver Windows Vista halts and reboots.

     

    Solution:

    Note: Make sure that Studio 10.8/11 is already installed and patched to its latest version before doing the steps.

     

    Verify your version of the Driver.

    1. Click the “Pearl” (Vista Start button) and type Device Manager on the search box and press Enter
