My freind told me that you can run the dell media direct software witout actually booting up the pc.

Is this true? How do you do it?

I would love to know.

On mine you lift up the lid and press the Media Direct button beside the Inspiron 6400 logo.

I have tried pressing the button but nothing happens when do I do it. I have a inpiron 6400 as well
Whats so silly VOG?

Did you format the drive and perhaps remove the Media Direct software?

I may have misunderstood the original question, which needs more explanation.
