slow downloads / splitting drivers

Compaq / Presario home model
June 29, 2011 at 16:49:09
Specs: Windows XP2002 service pack 3, intel celeron 1.10GHZ / 512 mg of ram
I have 60 gigs of memory in my E drive, but some program told me I need more memory to download faster. Maybe there's a way to split some of that E drive memory to where I really need it? HELP. P.S. I'm told the 60 gigs was an add on to the mother board.

Hmm, I think you need to read up on what memory means and what a hard drive is.

RAM is memory and a hard drive is not considered to be memory.

Unless your system is seriously short on RAM (not disk space) the only thing that will significantly improve download speed is a faster Internet connection. You need to talk to your ISP about that.

1st of all, a driver is software, a DRIVE is hardware.

2nd, (as stated above) memory & the hard drive are 2 completely different things & you're obviously confused about which is which.

THIS is memory.

THIS is a hard drive.

Your hard drive has a capapcity of 60GB but apparently you only have 512MB of memory (aka RAM). 512MB isn't nearly enough these days.

johnny johnson, I pretty much agree, nowadays, 512 Megs is pretty minimal and 1 Gig is more desirable.
That said, some sort of download manager that does multiple down loads at the same time and the combines them into one when finished would help. I've used one in the past and it REALLY helped. Mine had a resume feature in case the connection got broken.
