    Anybody else running Vista 64 Business, a BMD HD Extreme and Prem Pro CS4 getting occasional blue screen sys crashes using driver 7.1 or 7.1.2? If so, any thoughts on why?

    I reverted to 7.0 and no more blue screen system crashes.

    Hello Bill.
    I also have this crashes in premiere cs4 for the project I working on now right now. This starting to happend today when I upgrade to 7.12 from 7.0. The Computer just shots down and does a restart. So I downgrade to 7.0 and everything works just fine again. I have Multibridge extreme and windows XP 32 sp3. But 7.0 works just like a dream (don´t know why I did a upgrade?).
    Best regards! 🙂 Pelle

    Apparently we’re the only two BMD/CS4 users experiencing this. I sent a support request to BMD support after 7.1 came out. They said they would look into it, but I never heard back from them. I would add that the installer does not work very well either, since I had all sorts of trouble getting the drivers installed properly. I hope they monitor these posts and act on them.

    The installer worked fine for me but it was no doubt that it was the driver(7.1.2) that cause the crashes in my case. The timeline/ sequence I worked with was a 12 minute 10 bit SD widescreen with clip mad of targa imopted as numberd stills. It also had a afftereffect comp inside the timeline. I have worked with this projekt just fine with 7.0 drivers but when i had upgrade to 7.1.2 i could no longer opend this projekt without that the computer fully crashes immediately. I could start a new projekt and then premiere worked as normal but I don´t know how much the “limit” of clip would be for it to collaps. 12 minute of tgas was at least to much. When I rooled back to 7.0 driver everything works just perfect again. I tested this driverchange twice with the same results.
    Best regards. Pelle Ferner
