CD drive issues in XP

I've been around many forums and no one has found the resolution to this problem:

If you have a Gigabyte motherboard -
Using XP with any service packs, XP will not run many games and will ask to insert the correct game disc. This, for sure, happens with Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2, Doom3, and Farcry. I have not yet heard anything from Gigabyte support and have already installed the latest chipset drivers (Nvidia).

*Weird thing is that all games will run fine using Windows 2000 Pro. Sounds like XP and Gigabyte need to have a meeting.
