BSOD 0x0000008e minidump posted

My computer gets the BSOD once in a while, I'm trying to figure out what is causing this.
The event log shows this:

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.  The bugcheck was: 0x1000008e (0xc0000005, 0xb7ce0a1a, 0xa5ee7520, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini102508-01.dmp.

I've posted the minidump file (rename extension to .dmp), my system is fairly new nvidia 650mobo, q6600, 4gig, sata/raid-0, 8800GT

Try one of these two sources for understanding your bsod better:

http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=1647

http://forums.pcper.com/showthread.php?t=447620

The last link will help you get a more accurate look at the issue since you already have, and know of, the minidump.

Your crash dump indicates that mcdbus.sys is causing the problem.

> 0x1000008e <
See article here, which points to a driver issue or need for BIOS update. >
0x0000008E: KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
A kernel mode program generated an exception which the error handler didnt catch. These are nearly always hardware compatibility issues (which sometimes means a driver issue or a need for a BIOS upgrade).

I did uninstall the MagicDisk software and the mcdbus.sys file disappeared. I will now do virus scans to see if there is still any problem.

Just wanted to check up on your problem.

Do you still intend to use MagicDisk? It looks like the latest version was put out in January 2008 version 2.5.79 and is available here:
