Assuming you're running XP, have you installed service pack 2 ?

There were known bugs in imapi.sys that sp2 should fix.


BSOD'S have error messages on them what was yours .
something like this .
0x00000040 (parameter, parameter, parameter, parameter) TARGET_MDL_TOO_SMALL


UDFS_FILE_SYSTEM 0x0000009B (0x000400E0, 0xaa30257c, oxAA302278, oxBA9C9E7e) Imapi.sys adress BAC9E7e Base at BA9c8000 datestamp 41107b6c


It could also be a faulty RAM stick.
Use an Admin tools software to test your RAM modules.

could be maybe ,but i dont think UDFS_FILE_SYSTEM points to bad ram .
