8004520c Error While Encoding & Can't Defrag C Drive



I'm using MYDVD10 for 1st time this weekend. Trying to figure this thing out. I'm getting a "8004520c error while encoding Movie 1" error message. Does anyone have any ideas? I think I saw something the other day, about either the same error code or a similar one, saying that the usual cause was a hard drive that needed to be defragmented. At that time, I couldn't defragment my C drive because it was too full. I moved off to another drive about half it's contents, then tried to defragment the C drive again. It just hangs at the "Analyzing 1 percent" complete message and doesn't go anywhere. Wait, it finally finished the analyzing and now it's stuck on the "Defragmenting 1percent compacting files message. It was hung up on this last night for several hours before I broke out of it. I've got 23gigs free on a 50gig C drive.

Does anyone have any ideas on either problem? The error code and the fact I cn't get the C drive to defragment.

Thanks in advance ... Chris

run chkdsk and make sure there aren't a load of lost clusters causing the problem. It won't run from windows, so schedule it to run at reboot and also tell it to repair all errors


I take it btw that you emptied the recycle bnin first?
