Also, I never used my CD drive. I only used the DVD driver. So its a bit weird that the CD drive is acting up too.
that doesn't rule out being the drive itself.

Still you could try updating the ASPI drivers
Adaptec ASPI Drivers (Windows 98/Me/NT/2000/XP)

Thanks for all the help guys. I've fixed this problem. It seems that the drive couldn't read any CDs. I popped in a Windows XP CD and went to Bios, set it to read the drive first. It read the CD fine, ended up reformating the computer. Worked fine after I reformated it.

So it read the CD fine - but not in XP
I think that reinstalling the ASPI drivers would have worked.
