Kindle 2 storing failure - Windows Killer

Hello,

I've been using Kindle 2 with Ubuntu 8.04 for 1 month. It isnt completely compatible because of its SYSFS deprecated i think.
Ubuntu mounts Kindle 2 but sometimes when copying to device sometimes it was umounted automaticaly.
Anyways i've beeing using it and all was right until yesterday.

I stored a new mobi ebook and it seems to be all correct but the Kindle 2 umounted. Then i looked in Kindle 2 and all the ebooks and clippings i had were erased. Only Dictionary and Tutorial persisted.
I plugged again to computer and documents folder was empty. I've tried again to copy the file and returned and error trying to copy the file. or any other

Furthermore i went to one Windows XP computer i had and tried to copy the file.
I got a blue screen failure!!!!!!!!!!
Error writting in the disk. Alerts it was dumping data and warning me that if thats persists reset and maybe HD is broken.

I havent tried to reset Kindle 2 yet. Any idea?
Is Kindle 2 a Windows killer?

I think i would contact to Amazon support.

Thank you very much.

Problem fixed reseting Kindle2, 20 seconds holding startup button.

Make backups of your book and clippings if your environment with kindle is not really safe.

Bye
