I hear this defrag issue again and again more lately. Frankly I agree with it but you really do need to check your not burning crap media as well.
On the defrag end, I'm kinda a noob to burning dvd,,,,but not cd-r or pc's for that matter...been building them close to 10 years now.....and hdd optimization is pretty damn important. What strikes me odd....is why many vendors are shipping clone boxes pre-installed with xp-home or xp-pro, on a fat32 partition. To me this seems odd as hell, and makes the defrag problem worse.
My ex brother in law called me over for help the other day.....pent4 3ghz....512ddr 80 gig hard drive,,,,,xp-pro, he has to defrag after ever rip or capture to burn. Factory new Systemax box, no mods..........xp on fat32....I don't get it.
Sorry for the long post, and if you've read this far....sorry to digress......but if your on fat32....you may wish to consider getting off it and on to ntfs....some other advantages as well....
