MediaDirect 3.5 reinstallation Dell Inspiron 1526

I've reinstalled the OS and MediaDirect 3.5 in the past so i'm familiar with the circumstances. I just need the 'exact' procedure for proper installation of the Dell MediaDirect 3.5 in Windows Vista Home Premium for a Dell Inspiron 1526 as I have misplaced the original pamphlet that accompanies the manual. (These directions are seperate from the actual manual for reasons beyond my comprehension).

Also, I have confronted several problems reinstalling the drivers in the past (namely video), so if anyone has installed this system before with success, please do share as DeLL itself hasn't a clue....

Welcome to the forums Dan emoticon.Wink.title



The main thing you need to know/remember, is to install Media Direct first  - i.e. even before you install the OS emoticon.Idea.title

For advice on the installation order thereafter, see here emoticon.Yes.title
