You don't defrag a cd drive... there is nothing to defrag.

You only defrag your harddrive, not a cd/dvd drive

How Do I Increase My Speed


there are a few ways to increase the system performance, here's some:
1: remove any programs you don't use, this reduces the disk access time increasing performance
2:remove any toolbars or PuPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) as these also take up disk space
3: Defragment your hard disk, think of the data stored on the disk as a messy room, the defrag tool included with yourOS will clean up and organize this mess to make the system more efficient and disk access will be significantly reduced
4:Clean up the disk, there is a nifty little tool included with your OS called disk cleanup, this will remove temporary and unused files and gets rid of things that you and the system no longer need and frees disk space, decreasing the disk access and seek timings will shorten
and the big one...5: Buy an SSD, this is a super fast disk that originates from the usb pendrive, it's faster, more energy efficient, and can store data without the need to defragment, this is an expensive way to speed up your PC, but by golly is iit worth it!!

Tip

Maintain Your Hard Drive.


Your hard disk drive is one of the most important parts of your PC. It's where all your system files, applications and user data is kept. Most people understand the issue of security, the importance of making regular backups of your user data as an insurance policy against hard drive crashes. Few people realise and appreciate the importance of having regular hard disk maintenance which is designed to keep it in good working order.

The ultimate way to revitalise and cleanse your PC is to wipe the hard drive, start from scratch and then reinstall the operating system. However, there is much you can do to avoid such a situation arising, simply by using utilities provided within the bundle of your Windows operating system.

Disk cleanup
The Disk Cleanup tool helps you free up space by searching your disk for unwanted files that you can safely delete. It can remove all of the following:

Temporary Internet files.
Files in the Recycle Bin.
Temporary Windows files located in the Temporary files folder.
Optional Windows components that you are not using.
Installed programs that you no longer use.

To launch Disk Cleanup via Start menu go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools
slasher_x_4.gif

A dialogue window should now appear enabling you to select the drive you want to clean up. Select the required drive and click OK.
slasher_x_5.gif
The specified drive will be exampined and the amount of space you can potentially free up is calculated.
slasher_x_6.gif
The results, showing the amount of space that can be recovered by deleting files that are not needed are then displayed on the Disk Cleanup tab.
slasher_x_7.gif

Error Checking
Chkdsk.exe is a utility which verifies the logical integrity of a file system. In the event of the utility encountering logical inconsistencies in file system data, it will perform the necessary actions to repair the file system data. The same utility in earlier versions of Windows was called to as ScanDisk.

To Launch Chkdsk go to My Computer and right-click the hard disk you want to have checked. Then click Properties and select the Tools tab.
slasher_x_8.gif
Click on Check Now.

A dialogue box showing the Check disk options is displayed.
slasher_x_9.gif
Select the appropriate options and click Start.

You may get the following message.
slasher_x_10.gif
If so click Yes and your computer will reboot and then perform the scan.

Disk Defragmentation
Since files are constantly being written, deleted and over written to the hard drive, files are likely to become fragmented and scattered all over the drive. The disk defragment tool takes these files and puts them in order by eliminating spaces between files.

To start the disk defragment tool go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter
slasher_x_12.gif
Then select the Tools tab and click Defragment Now.
slasher_x_8.gif
It should now display the hard drives showing total capacity as well as the free space of the drive(s).
slasher_x_13.gif
Now select the drive you want to defragment and click Analyse.
slasher_x_14.gif
The drive is scanned and a visual representation of how it is currently fragmented is displayed.

Depending on the the results of the analysis, you will be advised as to whether or not the volume should be defragmented.
slasher_x_15.gif
Even if it's not necessary, you can choose to Defragment anyway if you like.

The time it takes to defragment the hard drive is dependent on the size of the drive, how the fragmentation lies and how much free space it has.

As the drive defrags you can see how it is neatly repacking the files by looking at the bottem visual bar.
slasher_x_16.gif
Once it is complete you will get the following message
slasher_x_17.gif
You can choose to view the report which will show hard drive information such as free space, used space, cluster size and the free space as a percentage. Or you can just lick Close as the defragmentation is now complete.

Doing these checks frequently will prolong the lifespan of your hard drive and make sure it's running at maximum speed.

How to speed up computers.


**1The main reason which slowdowns system is VIRUS ATTACK.
Powerful tool to avoid this is installing Anti Virus.
Anyhow installing a anti virus is not sufficient.You need update the anti virus continuously(once for a week)
Updating means:-Hackers will generate the viruses and they will upload those viruses to internet data base every day.Which enters our computer when connected internet.The companies which provides the anti virus software will scans those viruses and they update those virus name our anti virus data base so that if any programs by those virus names which are in anti virus data base.Anti virus will block those programs.
So It's necessary to update the anti virus program continuously.

If you have genuine Windows operating system you can use "Microsoft Security Essentials" for FREE.



**2The reason which slowdowns PC is creation of unwanted sectors in hard disc.


For this Defragmentation is the best method to clear unwanted sectorsTo defragment the hard disc Select the partition>Right click>Properties>Tools>Defragment disk>Defragment>ok
Watch this...

**3)Another aspect which slow downs the system is creation of error sectors
you can use Check Now option to clear error sectorTo activate Check Now*Select the partition>Right click>Properties>Tools>check nowIt check for error during next reboot


**You can use "CHKDSK" command in DOS(instant check)


**3)You can use Disk Cleanup to delete temporary files,offline pages,log files, queued and error reports(These files are not important and files consumes much memory which can't cleared by us so we need to use Disk Cleanup.
To use this thisSelect the partition>Right click>Properties>select Disk

Cleanup (Disk Cleanup can be used for C: drive only effectively(Because temporary files,offline pages,log files, queued and error reports are saved in C: only)


**Options and Menu's are with respect to Windows7 & Windows related operating systems.

Thank you have a nice day

In Roxio Creator 10, I attempt to burn a disk of a slide show. I receive an error message 8004520C When I check production it reports no problem. This is repeatable.


Generally, defragmenting your hard disk will resolve this issue. To defragment your computer:

  1. Go to Start--> Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> Disk Defragmenter.
  2. When the Disk Defragmenter window opens, choose Defragment.

If defragmentation doesn't resolve the issue, burn your project as a data file, and then burn your project as a data disc using Disc Copier or Creator Classic. To create a disc image/data file:

  1. After clicking the Burn button, the Burn Project window opens.
  2. You have two data burning options:
    • Image file - this option will save your project as an .ISO file. To burn this file you will need to use the Burn Image option in Creator's Copy section.
    • Folder Set - burning a folder set will create a Video_TS folder that you can burn using Creator Classic. Burning a folder set to DVD will create a fully functional DVD. Do NOT rename the Video_TS folder other wise it will not play! Simply place it in a folder that is the name of your project if you need to keep track.

When i install windows xp i done it 2 times


What exactly do you mean? Well, you can always format the drive. This will delete everything on it, and then you can install Windows and start from scratch. But if you want to keep intact all your data and files, then you have the option of defragmenting the drive.
How to defragment: Go to "Start -> All Programs ->Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Defragmenter". You can select the drive you want to defragment and press on "Defragment" button. Defragmenting helps you free up space

Defragment does not work


You need to re-register the defragmenters snap-in files, and the basic registry entries.
  • First open up a Command Prompt, this can be found at:
    Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt

  • Change into your windows\system32 directory. Your windows directory will be either windows or winnt. Type:
    cd \windows\system32

  • Register the defrag components, by typing:
    regsvr32 dfrgsnap.dll
    regsvr32 dfrgui.dll


    registerdefrag.gif

  • At this stage, you may find the defragmenter works. If not, there is one more step you can do.

    Using Windows Explorer browse to your windows\inf folder.
    In there you will find a file called dfrg.inf right click this file, and select Install.
  • If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
    Thanks, Joe
