What CD or DVD? Is it a game? Also, I have to say that that will happen if the computer can't really handle a lot of things at once (due to the RAM). Try running a virus scan, although that's probably not the problem. The computer is loading the contents of the DVD or CD when you put it in. Try closing some unnecessary programs.

Try closing unnecessary programs... I think it's the RAM. However, make sure that your virus scanner not only locates malware, but adware, and really any form of invasion. Viruses aren't the only things that slow down your system. Spyware can, as well.

But I think it's the RAM. Do you ever have a lot of programs open? Try going to task manager and see how much RAM you're using. If it's 100% (or close), close some stuff.
