get DMA turned on for the hard drive and cd drive

open a terminal and su to root
then type

hdparm -d /dev/hda

(/dev/hda refers to your hard drive)

if this returns a msg saying dma is OFF
then

hdparm -d1 /dev/hda

then

hdparm -c /dev/hda

if this returns a msg saying 32bit support is off or 16bit support is on
then

hdparm -c1 /dev/hda

this will help
