It could be that the DVD is drawing too many amps.. It could be caused from the power cord going to it....is not properly installed/seated. Check the power cord to the DVD. Also make sure that your power supply is not being overloaded with your system periphs (fans, etc.)

What size power supply do you have?

Did you recently add anything to the computer? Is your ZIP drive new and an internal model?
