I had similar problems here under win2k when writing to CD/DVD or doing 
bulk data transfers from optical - turned out both my DVD-ROM and DVD+-RW 
were set to PIO.  I reset them to DMA (UDMA in the writer's case) and all 
was well with the world.  As Kyle said, check those settings out and fiddle! :)
