    No, do not wipe your device.

    It is not necessary but I always do as do many others. I would suggest that you do after backing up your Device. That is just my 2 cents however.

    On Xp just go to start/control panel/add remove programs. On Vista it will be start/setting/control panel/programs and features. Also after you downloaded the operating system did you run it to install it to the PC. May sound like a silly question but sometimes people forget.

    try going into the same folder you deleted vendor from and click on loader there and see if it will load it that way. Also what version of DM are you using?

    Also make sure the vendor file is gone. It seems if you click update automaticlly it sometimes reloads the vendor when you connect your device.
