Dell :: Disable Media Centre

Apr 22, 2009

I have a new Dell Studio 1737, with Vista Home Premium which I'm happy with ... apart from this Dell Media Direct thingy which is driving me berserk! Intermittently, and for no apparent reason, it jumps up a big black box (Dell MediaDirect), then another box (MediaDirect Home) which seems to be for running films etc.

OK I may use it sometime in the future, but hopefully when I request it ...

I can't find it in the Startup files, nor in Task Manager.

So how can I turn it off?

Apr 22, 2010

I have M1330 that is trying to boot to media direct then promptly BSOD's. I believe the scenario that happened was the notebook was hibernated, then they pressed the media direct button instead of power to wake it up.

How do I tell not to boot to media direct?

I saw this exact same message in another thread but no resolve.

Dell :: Quickset And Windows Mobility Centre

Jun 19, 2009

As I'm sure those of you who installed it are aware, the latest Version of Quickset is now ran on startup as a service. Yay!

However, for me, when it opens it also opens the Windows Mobility Centre on startup. Does anyone know a way to keep QuickSet on startup, but stop the Mobility Centre popping up?

Sony :: Recovery Centre

Jun 30, 2009

I am in need of completely formatting my computer, it has loads of junk on it and really just needs a complete clean out as it is extrmeely slow and no matter what i seem to do it won't impove it.

I can only really get into Widows Vista via "Safe Mode" and when I go to Sony Recovery Centre to try to completely format the computer it asks me for a Recovery Disc.

Is this something that should have come with the computer or do I need to create the recovery disc first, and then use that.

Dell :: About SSD In E6400 Media Bay

Nov 2, 2009

for the E6400 media bay (I hope that's what it's called, I'm referring to the location where the optical disk is). I'd like to add a SSD before my trip to overseas and I have a few questions about this:

1) what kind of SSD should I get? I'd like to get a 128GB or 256GB SSD. Is it any 128/256GB SSD or do I need to get a specific kind?

2) If I want the SSD to be the primary drive and a 500GB HD to be the data drive, do I need to put the SSD in where the HD is and then put the 500GB HD in the optical disk caddy tray? (I bought the newmodeus caddy tray)

Dell :: Media Direct 2.0 Please?

Nov 9, 2009

I'm trying to get hold of Media Direct for the Dell 6000. I've searched quite a few boards and come across links to where it was supposed to be, but they've been old links.

I've also been able to download 80% of the ISO on a torrent I've found, but its now stopped as the guys who had 100% have gone off line.

I was hoping someone here has still got a copy of the ISO so I can reinstall it onto the laptop I've just replaced the hard drive with.

Dell :: External Media Bay

Dell :: Media Direct 3.0

Oct 22, 2007

I just got an i9300, that I'm having fun setting up. I've already done a couple hardware upgrades (OUT; 1GB PC4200, IN; 2GB PC5300. OUT; 60GB/5400, IN; 160GB/5400). See "sig" for rest of specs.

I've got a copy of Windows MCE 05. I'd like to set this up with Dell Media Direct 3.0. I've done a ton of searching the forums here, and a few other sites. I've printed out several hard copies of "How To Install MD3" threads for reference., here's the crux. I need a copy of MD3. I "acquired" (nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more) a copy, and burned the ISO to DVD. When I first used it, it set up the partitions, and then gave a wierd error about "not being able to find the Media Direct PLAY button...". Setup halted in it's tracks. I ran it a couple times, same error. After the 2nd try, I exited out and installed MCE05.

My hard drive had the 47MB (EISA Configuration) partition on the front, my C: drive, followed by a 2.01GB "Unknown Partition". Looks right, but, both the 47MB and 2.01GB partitions are empty. 100% empty.

So, I install MCE05, all the drivers, Nero 7 and Cyberlink PowerDVD 6. Defrag. I then put the MD3 disk in, and let it do it's thing. The Installation Notice comes up, and then it halts IMMEDIATELY thereafter, giving an error of "This system is not supported by this Reinstallation DVD. Installation will now exit."

Are there different versions of MD for different machines/OS'es/etc?? What version do I need for my system/OS??

What are the chances that I can sweet talk Dell into sending me a copy, where this system is out of warranty and I'm the 2nd owner?

If the chances of that (above) are "none", does anyone have a copy of the "correct" version I can "borrow" so I can get this set up?

Anyone know of a way to make the QuickSet media keys work with iTunes when using another application? Big annoyance to have to navigate back to iTunes when I want to change the song or stop it, though the Win7 Jump List controls help a bit.

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Media Buttons?

Aug 21, 2009

I can still change the volume, but that little graphic that pops up when you turn it up/down is no longer there, making it hard for me to see what the volume is.

Second, and more importantly, the "eject" button no longer works. I have to manually goto the disk drive, right click, and click eject............

I have been unable to find anything to replace the disk drive with. After OS and basic application installation, I never use CDs or DVDs.

I would much prefer a battery or hard drive. Even a plastic weight-saver would be better than the disk drive

Dell :: SXPS 13 - Media Button Fix?

Aug 26, 2009

I just got my SXPS 13 in the mail today, and it seems that the touch sensative buttons do not work,

I've read on the forum and others of the issue and a manual reset fixes the issues, or upgrading the win7 eliminates the problem.

P.S. I bought the SXPS without the leather accent so if anyone wants to see some pics i can snap a couple

Dell :: Re-installing Media Direct 3.5

May 14, 2009

Windows Vista crashed and the OS disk that was included with the system was corrupt so I had a local company re-install from their disk, however, I did not

supply them with the media direct CD (v3.5 on an Inspiron 1525) because I didn't know that it had to be installed at the same time.

Now I need to (from looking at other threads) partition the disk - will this be done by just running the Media Direct CD and picking option 1?

Or do I have to have the OS disk (which I don't have)? I don't want to pick option 1 until I know that I don't need the OS disk .....

Dell :: Media Direct 4 On The Studio 15

Sep 16, 2008

I just got my Studio 15 last week and love this notebook! On previous Inspiron notebooks if you pressed one of the media buttons while the system was off, it would then do a quick boot to a Media Direct partition where you could play movies and music and also view photos. However, on my studio, when I press the media direct botton while the notebook is off, it changes the splash screen during POST to a Media Direct splash screen but then boots into the OS, where I have to log in, and then the Media Diract app launches. This was a big dissapointment for me. Is anyone else seeing this? I was hoping that maybe I got a bad factory install, but if others are seeing this then I guess Dell has done away with the hidden Media Direct partition.

Dell :: Media Direct Versions 3.5 And 4

Apr 3, 2010

I have been having terrible problems with Dell Media Direct. All started when I done the dell factory restore and after that the dell media direct fast boot option no longer worked. The hidden partition I suspect somehow corrupted. It worked okay under Windows Vista though.

Anyway I tried many fixes this without resorting to the drastic measure of repartitioning and losing my windows installation (which has taken me months to get it how I want).

The other I day I uninstalled Dell Media Direct under add/remove programs on vista. I then tried to reinstall it but now I cannot get the software to reinstall under vista. I have done this before several times without a hitch so I do not know why it is now causing problems.

I run dellkit.exe and it goes through the percentage bar so looks like it is installing. However there is very little cd drive activity indicating it is not doing an awful look. Eventually at approx 17% it suddenly pops up saying it's installed

Dell :: Studio 15 Media Buttons

is there a way to get them to do the exact opposite...instead of being off and lighting up when you touch can they be lit up and then go dark when you touch?....what would be really nice is if you could make them light up when you light your keyboard up and not light up when your keyboard isnt lit....

Dell :: Media Button Test

Dec 10, 2008

how the media buttons stop working after a resume and how the eject button stays on.

i have been testing something and would like others to try this out. follow me here:
i notice the eject button light stays on when i close the lid and then pull the usb cable out (connected to a Dell 24" widescreen with usb port which connects: 2 mouse and 2 printers and a external drive).
*IF* i disconnect the usb first and wait for the full disconnect sound and THEN close lid, the eject button doesn't light up.

i'm thinking... and it could be completely wong here but the eject button might have something to do with shut down and boot up of usb devices and is going though some sort of a systems check? why? i dunno. it's been rather sporatic but i head to class 4x's a week and i shut down differently and i have experienced different results. testing a few things out.
