Audio CD causes Bugcheck
Posted on 2004-08-08
Whenever I try to play an audio CD, or an audio CD is in the drive at boot time, XP throws a bugcheck.
The bugcheck code is either D0 (DRIVER_CORRUPTED_MMPOOL) or C5 (DRIVER_CORRUPTED_EXPOOL), depending on whether or not an audio CD was in the drive at boot time.
Yes, it worked fine at one time. Unfortunately it's been such a long time since I've played an audio CD, a lot of water (and upgrades) have flowed under the bridge, so pinpointing when the offender was installed is not possible.
Interestingly, or unfortunately, enough, with Verifier active, XP fails to boot, and entering Safe mode, Verifier setings are cleared.
Soo, any good ideas on tracking down the malefactor, or is just slog through all the driver loads one by one?
