Default "usbscan.sys" is needed from a SP2 CD", but I never got a CD

I'm trying to install CardScan v.7.0.3. I get a message saying that "The
file “usbscan.sys” on Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 CD is needed.
Type the path where is located, and click OK."

My problem is that I downloaded SP2 off of the updates page. Is it possible
to get a SP2 CD, and if so how?

Many thanks, but I checked them -- even a full My Computer search turned up
nothing.

Oddly, my i386 folder is completely empty.

This may be my fault: once I downloaded SP2, I waited a month or two to make
sure everything worked. It did.

I have only a 40G harddrive and followed the recomendations of a neowin
article that said you could safely remove anything added by SP2 if you
followed its steps, which I did.

Maybe this .sys file got nuked through that, but I don't recall touching
anything asociated with the third rail of the i386 files.

I'm hoping somebody can tell me where to find an SP2 CD -- MS wants you to
download it, yet Corex wants the CD.

Did you try using the CD you have already, despite the fact that it doesn't
have SP2 on it? I'm betting it might just work...

Either that, or ask someone to email you the file that has SP2 installed on
their system... Make sure that you give it a thorough virus scan before you
try to use it however...
