Don't have Win XP installed, but if you right-click on desktop icon for My Computer, select Explore, right-click on drive icon you've installed, select Properties and the Tools tab will get you to ScanDisk.
Other access is via Programs>Accessories>System Tools after clicking on Start button. You can get a wealth of information from System Information, too.
I really don't think you have a problem with the new HD, but a thorough DiskScan will tell you something. May be a data rate transfer problem, but need to see if HD is okay for sure. Could be improperly formatted for Win XP, but formatting of drive is easy enough.
Might check the Properties on your CD drive from Device Manager. Mine is under PCI - Bus and selecting the CD icon and then clicking on the Properties button allows me to change some settings for the CD unit. Settings like : sync data transfer, auto-insert notification, volume setting, or enable/disable digital CD audio.
Probably missed some instructions here, but getting late for me. Brain locked.
