That amount of memory isn't much for XP, it needs more than Win 98--But
what type of DVDs are you using.  Purchased movies, or something you
made.  What software are you running to access the drive, such as Roxio
or some other type of product?

Can you write to a new disc and read it then?

When you put the drive in, did you check to make sure the Master/slave
jumpers were correct for your situation?

Is it possible you had some commercial media that when ran
previously, installed some kind of DRM that you have since
removed and having done so, it has broken the drivers?

I would try doing a testbed install of XP, clean and
unpatched to see if the problem persists... then let Windows
update itself to the present level the main OS installation
is at.
