    When you reinstalled XP, did you then immediately reinstall all the motherboard chipset drivers (nothing directly to do with the CD or DVD)?

    The IDE bus drivers control the interface to the cd-DVD drives and Windows will only provide basic generic drivers in many cases. The motherboard chipset drivers (downloadable from the makers website if you do not have the CD) should be reinstalled immediately following Windows installation.

    Using the Windows "update drivers" will not work, it will just give the most up to date "generic" ones.
