Mac OS X unexpectedly quits when iBurst USB modem plugged in


May 9, 2007
My MacBook is a dual boot machine with Windows XP SP3 and Mac OS X 10.5 ( I am in the process of very slowly updating to 10.5.3). Last night I was able to connect to the internet on both Windows and Leopard. But now when I boot my MacBook in Leopard with the USB iBurst modem plugged in or I plug in the modem after Leopard has loaded, a black screen telling me in several languages that I have to restart my computer by holding down the power key for several seconds appears. However, I have no problems with the modem at all when I boot up in XP. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers - no joy.

It was working fine yesterday. I haven't changed anything on my computer. In fact I didn't even use it today, it's been on my desk at home. What's the problem? Anyone know/have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
