Yes you can format computer with vista disk and instal new windows. Inser that vista disk into cd/dvd rom then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 del or ALT+F2 key to enter in bios. Then go to boot menu and set first boot device as cd /dvd rom then save settings and exit from bios. Then it boot with windows disk.Then follow the procedure and choose installing new windows xp then select 1 partition and format it then it install windows vista on it.It will take 30 to 45 minutes to complete the installation.

Go to Control Panel....Devise Manager .....find you CD/DVD player on the list...click on it ......there should be a option to replace the DRIVER for this device. If there is a yellow exclaimation point next to your CD/DVD player it is probably bad IF you have installed and reinstalled the programing several times and it still does work. On a rare ocassion Windows Update can fowl a player. Very LAST thing to try is roll back the latest Update. You might also try doing a System Restore to a point before the CD/DVD player went out.
Sounds like drive drive has took a dump on yah. I would just install a new dvd drive. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. I replaced a drive that was doing the same thing you discribed and it solved my issue.
dont mind it... if you want to install xp to your computer while you are using utimate vista you can install it... but you must have a large space of memory to install xp, tnx anyway hope that i can help...
It sounds like the CD is faulty. Can you take it to a local PC shop & ask them to check it for you? Also, try cleaning the CD - I have come across drives which wouldn't read a disc if it had a very visible fingerprint on it.
