The reason your ram usage is so high is that unlike XP vista preloads memory rather than releasing it. Its not actually being used persay, but vista keeps it at the ready, so it looks like it is in use. As far as the DVD drive, when in doubt reboot. Might want to check the connection also. Maybe thats what was grinding :P If its a sata drive it could have come loose.

Nothing to see here.
