Is this why my computer had a BSOD everytime I'd plug in my 2.0 iPod?

    Hey guys,

    Once I had to unlock my best friend's iPhone,
    But everytime I did it, my computer (XP) would get a BSOD and crash.

    I thought it was strange since it never did that to my iPod.
    Then I upgraded to 2.0 for my iPod,
    and surprisingly my computer got a BSOD and crashed.

    So then, I realised.
    Hang on, it says my iPod is a camera on my computer when I upgraded to 2.0
    Same thing happened when I plugged in my best friend's iPhone (1.1.4)
    Everytime the camera thing showed.
    Computer crashes.

    So I thought maybe it has something to do with cameras, and then I looked straight at the Logitech webcam, DUM DUM! YOOOOUUUU!!!!

    So I uninstalled my Logitech webcam and its drivers,
    plugged in my iPod.

    And I was like, OH NO JAY, GET READY FOR THE CRASH, OH NO CAMERA THING POPPED UP, OH-OH, CRASH ANY MOMENT AND!!............nothing happened. Computer stayed on.

    I was like YES! VICTORY.

    But is this why I got a BSOD?

    Can some 'expert (if there's one who figured this out)' help me out here and tell me if this is the answer?

    Thanks.

    I'm guessing it was that the specific Logitech webcam and drivers conflicted with the Apple iPod camera drivers.

    Did you not answer your own question?

    I'm not necessarily saying that this answered my question,
    I'm just saying is this the official cure?

    Since I'm a noob at all this camera webcam stuff.

    I dunno.

    Thats the thing. :S
    Crashed with a un-used iPhone, too.
