Hmmm....I'm not sure what to tell you.
You may try to burn another CD.
Can you still boot normally to Windows?

Yeah, I can still boot to Windows fine as long as I take out the diagnostic CD.

I'll burn another CD and report back with the results.

I burned another diagnostic CD, and DLGDiag is still reporting "Error Code 0120: No Drive Found."

This is little bit weird.
Here is WD error codes page: http://support.wdc.c.../errorcodes.asp
Error 120 is totally different, so I'm not sure what to make out of it.

I'm not sure what to make of it as well. It says it can't find my hard drive, but then the next time I boot up my PC with the disk not inside, it detects my hard drive fine and boots Windows. It doesn't make much sense that my computer can't detect my hard drive when booting from a CD, but when booting from hard drive it detects it just fine and boots windows as normal.

In the meantime, I ran chkdsk using the /r command on my C: drive, it reported no bad sectors. I'm going to run it on my D: drive sometime soon, which I suspect is the partition that's causing me problems in the first place because my freezing problem only actively occurs in one game at a time.

Still holding out hope that this is just a few bad sectors that I haven't fixed, but I might have to replace my hard drive. :)
