That might be the problem, no wipey.
Verify the MD5 of your download with whats posted in the OP, do a full wipe, and reflash. Have you had buggy experiences with your USB up to this point? I ask because this is not an error anyone has reported in the recent, or really any, versions of this build.
If the phone is resetting when you unplug, check the port on the phone, make sure there's not any debris or fuzz in there. You may want to, with battery out of course, clean the port with an alcohol wipe in case anything made its way in there and is messing with your contacts.
It may be a problem with your windows box also, if it mounts properly to your MAC. Make sure you are using the original cord that came with the phone, or try a different USB port all together.
Also, if you do indeed have fast charge enabled, then you won't see anything when plugging into your windows system, thats how its designed to work, however, the mounting screen with the buddha should not popup automatically, unless you click the drop down notification. This tells me something else is going on here, so my first recommendation is the best place to start, verify the MD5 of the file you downloaded, if it doesn't match, redownload ICZen, and reflash after performing a full wipe following the instructions in the OP.
Let us know how you fare.
