Having plugged a Lacie hard drive into firewire slot on Dell laptop windows XP cuts out showing Stop 0x00000050 error PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA. On attempting to use system restore, I found that there were no restore points and I couldn't go either backwards or forwards on the calendar! Plugging in a LaCie pocket drive (which has worked well for 2 years) into the firewire port creates the same loss of Windows. The only reference to this that I could find at Microsoft doesn't seem to apply.
