Common hardware causes Windows 10 Anniversary Update crashes

Microsoft’s Anniversary Update causing headaches yet again, this time for owners of Kindle e readers. Some Kindle Paperwhite – Voyager devices are causing PCs running Anniversary update to lock up and display the dreaded blue screen of death (BSOD) whenever e-readers are connected via USB, as first reported by The Guardian.

reason for this odd behavior is unclear but Microsoft says it’s work on it.

“We are aware of an issue with small number of Kindle Voyager and Paperwhite e-Readers causing an unexpected behavior when plugged into Windows 10 devices after installing the Anniversary Update,” Microsoft said on its support forums.

The impact on you at home: For now, there isn’t solid workaround for anyone who’s experiencing this problem. Some users are reporting, however, that leave Kindle plug in to PC while rebooting will allow them to use Kindle normally – transfer files. Rebooting PC – plugging the Kindle back in again just causes another lock-up.
