You could also try this:

Goto Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Manager.

Click on View, choose devices by connection.

Expand the ATI IDE Controller
Expand the Primary IDE Channel
Make sure ATAPI DVD A DH16AYH is listed under the expanded IDE Controller.

Double Click the Primary IDE Channel
Click on Advanced Settings Tab
Change the transfer mode for Device 0 from "DMA if available" to "PIO only"
Click OK
