Yet another issue has been reported with Windows 10 Anniversary Update. We have previously reported that some users experienced their machines freezing up while quite a lot of users found that the update broke their webcams. As Microsoft works to address those issues, latest reports reveal that plugging in an Amazon Kindle might cause a PC running Windows 10 Anniversary Update to crash.
PC owners are reporting that their machine throws up the infamous Blue Screen of Death when an e-reader like the Kindle Paperwhite and Voyage is plugged in. They can’t go without plugging in their Kindles because a PC has to be used in order to transfer ebooks.
Many users who have been experiencing this issue have raised their concerns on the official Microsoft support forums. Some have also provided workarounds that don’t appear to be working for everybody.
One of the workarounds involves leaving the Kindle plugged into the PC and allowing it to reboot fixes the crashing problem, while another workaround suggests plugging in the e-reader into a USB 2.0 port instead of a USB 3.0 port.
Naturally, Windows 10 users will be looking forward to getting a fix in the near future as this is no way to go about connecting a Kindle to PC. Microsoft is yet to acknowledge the issue so it can’t be said for sure at this point in time when a fix might arrive.
