is it the CD that came with that Mac? Does the drive read media reliably?

In addition to all this, HFS+ isn't as susceptible to fragmentation as either FAT or NTFS is. There are multiple reasons for this, and without going into detail here are the primary two. HFS+ uses extent based allocation and it conditionally defrags (it actually just relocates the file) on the fly when you access a file.
