I am running a small peer to peer network from a Windows 2000 OS. Two users had the same application running. The app runs from a network directory. Suddenly, both workstations and the server (Windows 2000 box) froze and required hard re-boots to get back up. This happened twice in one day. I checked the system event log and found that on both occasions the following error occured: 'Driver detected an internal error in its data structures for.' In the 'source' column of the event viewer for this error, it read 'fastrak'.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Fastrak sounds like a tape archive device.  Does the application try to save to tape?
