Thats a bit unusual, sounds like a hardware not a software problem bus
as your DVD is presumably working fine on XP its more likely to be a
drivers / support issue.
Try this it might fix it.
Using XP go here http://www.driver-soft.com/
download and install the
trial version. Run Driver Genius Pro and backup all your drivers to a
temp folder, it will extract and copy every driver it finds on your PC
for all hardware. Burn the resulting folders to a CDR then install
Vista. When it asks for Drivers put the CDR in and it should find the
drivers it wants.
I am assuming you can read a DVD up to it asking for drivers?
otherwise find the CD drivers in the backup an put them on a floppy.
May not work but worth a try and you will have a backup of all XP
drivers on a CD if nothing else.
