    I hope someone might be able to point me in the right direction. I got a Kodak Easyshare C182 (12 megapixel) digital camera and have some pics on a Sandisk 2GB SD card. I have had no problem using the card reader on my PC at work (another Gateway 'puter) but when I put the card in my Gateway Laptop (scan information above) I get the following message:
    "Cannot install this hardware
    "There was a problem installing this hardware
    SD1 Device
    An error occurred during the installation of the device.
    The specified service does not exist as an installed service"

    This is my first experience with this type of technology, and I am pretty much lost. I have used a registry cleaner but as said in a another post, the problem presented itself prior to using that utility. I have used that same utility, by the way on my PC at work and have had no problems with the SD card on that machine.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    sounds as if you need to update the device drivers.
    Its been a while since I used win XP but if you can find the device manager go down the list and look for little yellow icons.
    Right click one at a time and select update driver, via internet, hopefully that'll do the job. Alternatively try the computers website for support on drivers.
