    i have a dell e1505 it shipped with dell media direct. which means that when the computer is off and one presses the dell media direct button the computer boots from a different partition on the HD and allows a person to access music and videos. however i formated my entire HD because of all the crap that dell installs. i called dell for help and they said that i would need the dell media direct reinstallation cd to make media direct work after a format. so they sent me one. when i try to install it it says that it was unable to copy some files for the installation. why would it say this? where can i get some info about installing it? i called dell and they did not know how to resolve the issue. wat a surprise. :confused:

    You need to boot from the Media direct cd and select option1. It will create a 2.01 GB partition (logical) for Media direct and allocate rest to OS. Then you need to reinstall OS and once the installation is complete, install Mediadirect from the cd.
