I just bought a used XPS 1710 laptop with all of the original software cd's that came with it. It currently has Vista Ultimate 32 bit loaded but the Media Direct is not. I was going to put the cd in until I read the CAUTION statment that said it will erase my hard drive. Does anyone know if that is the case? I do have the Vista back up Cd but that seems kinda odd that a medai player software would have to erase the hard drive.
