This would suggest tht either the DVD drive or PSU is faulty.

As you load the drive and power is drawn from the PSU, it sounds as if the PSU is cutting out and rebooting the PC. PSu cannot supply power or DVD drive is overloading PSU

have a look in event viewer for any errors.

can you "borrow another DVD / CD drive to try?
