    Before I got my comp completely wiped due to viruses, I could insert the a SD card from my Canon Powershot S2 IS into the port on my Dell Inspiron laptop and the comp would recognize, produce a little sound, and then ask me what I wanted to do with the new device. I'd transfer my pics and be on my way.
    Post-wipe, when I insert the card, the little sound happens but not the pop-up 'what do you want to do with this device.' I have also tried to access from the control panel and the device is simply not there.
    I'm using Microsoft Windows XP, Media Center Edition, Version 2002. SD cards are: Canon SD Memory card SDC-16M and SanDisk ultra II 1.0 GB. I tried some of the other posted fixes and then realized my version is out-dated and that's why they aren't working. Any fixes for my old but a goody version?

    Re-opening thread per request.

    It may hep to post the exact model of your laptop. Have you been to the Dell website to download the drivers for the card reader?
