When I got my new gateway laptop I refomatted it complelty with a XP Pro Disc. The laptop has a slot on the side for putting in the type of card's that go into digital cameras. Currently when I put a card in nothing happens so I am assuming that because there are no drivers for my "mass storage controller" that this slot will not work. Gateway has no drivers for it unless I roll back using there restore disk which would put XP pro on my computer. Where can I get these drivers? Thank you.

Well if gateway doesn't have them your next step would be to go to the manufacturer of the card reader. you can try everest home edition as it MIGHT be able to id it. Not sure as I've never used it for that type of hardware...

Usually these Memory Card Readers are connected to internal USB on motherboard – The Driver should be located on SP1 –

Additional PC info needed –

1- Is this an UPGRADE from WIN 98
2- Name & MFG of Printer
3- How many USB Devices – List them
4- What [Type] & [MFG] of Memory Card are you trying to read –

EDIT-[Changed from Dell to Gateway] - (18th Nov-2005)

Gateway may not support all Memory Cards– What does your Manual state about this Card Reader -

One more item – Open [Device Manager] & see if you have any [Unknown Devices] and/or any Yellow Warning Signs – Expand USB Host Controller Folder/s & see what is reported for USB Mass Storage Devices –
