    They've known about this issue since February. Their alleged fix hasn't resolved it. The temporary workaround requires an SD Card which I don't have. Just had a restore fail due to my laptop blue screening half way through it.

    Windows issue, not BlackBerry

    I don't have Win8 but look for a 2.0 usb port, don't use "ss" (3.0) ports...

    Have you tried the new Link version? I believe it was just released a few days ago, 1.2.

    It must have been fixed long time ago, I have never seen it - never... on any Windows 8 32 or 64 bit installations...

    Windows 8 issue, hardware, USB driver, USB Hub/wire, driver conflict, general software conflict, antivirus issue... can be many things - but I doubt it is BBLinks problem

    Same here I have windows 8 64 bit and have never had the issue. It's probably a combination of win 8, link and another program (eg virus software etc)

    It's not Link. I tried shutting down Link (not just minimizing it, but Ending the task), and it still happened. I guess Link being installed in the first place could be causing it, but...I dunno.

    I blue screen almost every time I have a BB plugged into my laptop. Link doesn't have to be running, just the "BlackBerry Device Manager". I can have absolutely zero other programs running, and still have it crash. Computer never crashes any other time.

    I read somewhere that it was because of USB 3.0 drivers in Windows 8, try connecting the phone to your USB 2 ports. That's what I did and ever since no more Windows crashing issues. Hope that helps.

    I have two USB ports on my Asus laptop. They both have an "SS" next to them. What does that mean?

    Those are USB 3.0 ports. If you have USB 2.0 ports (without the "SS" - Super Speed) connect your phone to those ports.
