FIX: A "Data Abort" exception may occur when a USB storage device is attached to and then immediately detached from a Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3-based device

Symptoms

If you attach a USB storage device to a Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3-based device and then immediately detach it from the device, a "Data Abort" exception may occur.

Cause

When a USB storage device is attached, the PNP thread calls the CreateFile function to obtain the device handle. If a device lock has not been obtained and the USB storage device is detached immediately, a "Data Abort" exception occurs.
