Re: DVD Writer & Blue screen of Death!!!
Hmm, that is a weird problem. Have you tried plugging it in in safemode and installing them?
Press F8,or F12 while computer is booting up, and choose safemode. I think USB devices should work, and you can try to update the firmware.
Though the firmware for the drive itself shouldn't be the problem if its going into blue screen as you plug it in :S
Have you tried it in another USB port by any chance?
